U.S. History Display: 1960s
We have sources on the life of Muhammad Ali, for example, and on the days of the peace marches, Woodstock, and psychedelic music. Read how post-World War II comfort turned into yet another war, how a new, rebellious youth culture shook the existing conventions, and how feminism and civil rights transformed the society. There's also a book on the Kent State shootings of 1970, where guardsmen killed four students and wounded nine after a student protest against the invasion of Cambodia went awry. This decade is like no other, and will leave no-one cold!
