Joan Baez (Harris) addresses members of Pi Chi, a youth organization at Piedmont Community Church in the East Bay. In her speech, Baez points out the evils of the Vietnam War and addresses the tactic of nonviolence resistance. The preceding week, the group had heard Dr. John Hadsel deliver a talk entitled "The Just War" and, according to the evening's program, Baez was presented in the interests of "balancing the perspective." She is introduced by the Reverend Thomas Trutner, and the program concludes with a lively question-and-answer session. Produced by Denny Smithson, who recorded continuity used during the question-and-answer session.
