The 1960s was a dramatic shift from the conservatism of the 1950s. Millions of children from the post-war baby boom were now teenagers and young adults, and they wanted change. Many of their revolutionary ideas still affect society today.

Social protest is heard from the jungles of Vietnam to the lunch counters of Woolworth in Greensboro, North Carolina. Harper Lee’sTo Kill a Mockingbirdsymbolizes the social distinctions between the races.

It is the decade of new heights, the space race and the landing on the moon, and new lows with the assassinations of John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X.
