The 1960s were one of the most turbulent decades in our nation’s history. We had the Civil Rights movement, the war in Vietnam, assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Senator Robert Kennedy, and Malcom X. We had the sexual revolution, cold war, Berlin Wall, Cuban Missile Crisis, riots and burning of major cities, women’s movement, dissent and disobedience throughout the country, and men walking on the moon.
Plus, we had the greatest popular music of all time! Jack Fisher, the disc jockey who introduced The Beatles at their first U.S. concert, was a regular dancer on American Bandstand, and rubbed elbows with early rock ‘n’ roll legends, including Dick Clark, Chubby Checker, and Ricky Nelson, will take you on a trip down through the soundtrack of your life by demonstrating how the music and culture reflected and influenced a generation. This lecture series will cover the decade year by year. The 1960s. They were turbulent and they were memorable. Come revisit this special time.
