Abbie Hoffman's energetic activism earned him a reputation as an agitator and an effective voice for America's counter culture of the 1960s. He attracted the attention of the FBI through his disruptive and dramatic demonstration at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. He was associated with most major radical groups of the 60s, including the Black Panthers, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), and the Youth International Party (YIP), which Hoffman cofounded in 1968.
