Join former Michigan marijuana prisoner John Sinclair, his family and friends to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his release from Jackson Prison 50 years ago.

The event will be held exactly 50 years after the John Sinclair Freedom Rally at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor when John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Stevie Wonder, Bobby Seale, Phil Ochs, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Seger, Commander Cody and a host of others gathered to speak, play and protest the imprisonment of their friend John Sinclair following a sentence in Detroit Recorder’s Court in July 1969 of 9-1/2 to 10 years for possession of two joints of marijuana.
The event is open to the public and music & poetry will be provided by John Sinclair & His Blues Scholars with special guests to be announced. Food and drink will be catered by the Ralston Center and music performances will take place on stage at the Stonehouse Bar, scheduled to reopen to the public on January 2, 2022. A $50.00 commemorative ticket for the event will be available to benefit The John Sinclair Foundation.
