Mapping out utopia: 1970s Boston-area counterculture

book 2: Boston

MAPPING OUT UTOPIA is a three-part look at the Boston area's 1970s counterculture, based on listings found in old countercultural directories and magazines.

Each volume of MAPPING OUT UTOPIA maps out a different part of the city. This one takes a stab at the heart of the region: BOSTON.

This volume offers overviews of almost 200 orgs, eleven hand-drawn maps, and a number of in-depth overviews on topics including Gay Liberation, black separatism, and church basements as countercultural command centers.

From Operation Black to the Recycling Revolutionary Coop, it's all in here.
