Jefferson Airplane  

Jefferson Airplane  

November 10, 1968 ~ It’s 5 days after Nixon’s elected president and Jefferson Airplane makes their third appearance on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour — a show known for not just laughs and good music, but for their political satire and statements.

For this appearance, Grace Slick dons blackface and does the black power salute at the end of their performance. Just another example of the “rock revolution” of the 60’s.
