White Panther Party, leader of the Blues Scholars, New Orleans'
favorite DJ five years in a row, poet and all around cultural
revolutionary - but he is perhaps most famous as the man sentenced to
10 years in prison for passing two joints to an undercover police
officer in 1969. In 1971, John Lennon agreed to headline the John
Sinclair Freedom Rally at Crisler Arena, and three days later Sinclair
was a free man. His life story is hitting the big screen in Twenty To Life: The Life and Times of John Sinclair, which is premiering in Italy this month. Read what Sinclair has to say about hanging out with John Lennon and today's peace movement here.
