Description:
Put on your bell-bottoms and grab your granny glasses, tie-dyes and beads! Let’s do a little back-to-the-future time travel to the seminal decade of the 1960s. Utilizing a compilation of articles originally published in the New Yorker, we will re-examine the confrontations over civil rights, economics, Vietnam, and lifestyles. We will review the tragedies of the all too common assassinations and the problems and promises of psychedelics and protests. We will re-experience the highs of Telstar and Apollo 11 and the lows of poverty in The Other America and of the damage echoed in The Silent Spring. And we will review our fascination with the entertainment and cultural icons of the era.

Book:
The 60s: The Story Of A Decade, The New Yorker(Henry Finder, editor)
