Pat Thomas

Pat Thomas’s Did It! from Yippie to Yuppie: Jerry Rubin, an American Revolutionary (Fantagraphics) is the first full length biography of the Yippie activist and Chicago Eight member who later reinvented himself as an investment banker and New Age/self improvement movement leader. An oversized oral and visual history and scrapbook, Did It! is based on over 75 original interviews of fellow Chicago Eight defendants, Bobby Seale, Nancy Kurshon and others.

“An eye-opener for those who remember the '60s; for everyone else, a welcome introduction to that tumultuous time as illustrated through one of its most memorable personalities.” - Kirkus Reviews. 

Pat Thomas is also the author of Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.
