The Temple Free Press was an independent student-run biweekly underground newspaper of the 1960s counterculture. The newspaper originally launched at Temple University in May 1968 but eventually broke ties and denounced any connection with the university. Its purpose was to provide the Temple community with coverage of local, state, and national movement news. The newspaper had a short run, stopping publication in 1972. This issue features a listing of local events, concerts, and protests, an article and letter arguing for the removal of military training and the ROTC from the university environment, a lengthy piece about the politics of protest, and a centerfold spread describing the myriad ways police harassed a local ‘hippie-shop’.
