The U.S. vs. John Lennon (2006)

The U.S. vs. John Lennon is a 2006 documentary film about British musician John Lennon’s transformation from a member of The Beatles to a rallying anti-war activist striving for world peace during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The film also details the attempts by the United States government under President Richard Nixon to silence him.

The full context of how powerful the Peace Movement was for just one small moment in time shouldn’t be forgotten

This is damn good … and all the parts are on Youtube
