Museum of the African Diaspora
Apr 26, 2017 - August 27, 2017

Composed of photographs taken of Jimi Hendrix in 1967, this exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the infamous Summer of Love and the entrance of Jimi Hendrix as one the greatest guitarists of all time.

As Jimi Hendrix walked out onto the stage at Monterey Pop, he was also stepping out for his American Rock and Roll debut. Playing with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, he introduced himself to California at the festival before the U.S. release of his first album. In a moment that solidified Hendrix as a rock idol, his performance was enlivened with rock theatrics, sexual flamboyance and magnetic guitar riffs. An integrated band with a black front man, The Jimi Hendrix Experience represented racial and sexual freedom as goals of the 1960s counterculture.
