In the 1960s, Americans enjoyed good times. They listened to the Beatles and danced the Twist. Hippies talked about peace, love, and flower power. One of the most thrilling moments of the decade came in 1969, when U.S. astronauts landed on the moon. But the 1960s were also a serious time. Across the nation, students protested against the Vietnam War. African Americans took a stand for civil rights, and women fought for equality. It was a decade of upheaval, and newsmakers such as President John F. Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. guided Americans through both triumph and tragedy. from pop art to Black Power, from Motown to miniskirts, read about this fascinating decade of change, rebellion, and excitement.
