Against the Grain

Against the Grain – May 30, 2006

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of one of the most important poems in US history — "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg. The poem set off a storm of controversy, leading to the arrest and eventual acquittal of City Lights Books publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and was famously aired on KPFA.
