The 60's...10 fast years...much change...
America started off the decade with separate waiting rooms for Blacks and Whites, separate water fountains, separate schools, separate hotels, separate restaurants, all white lunch counters at Woolworths and other Drugs Stores across the land (not only the South), separate hospitals, sitting at the back of the bus, giving up your seat....to the brink of the End in 1962....to the murder of a president in 1963....to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.....to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.....to the mass migration of Southern Democrats to the Republican Party....no more beatniks snapping their fingers(goodbye Horus and bongos!)..Say hello to the Mamas and Pappas and Folk Music in 1965...to our involvement with a colonial power (France) and it's allies to protect it's subjects against the evils of Communism...to the striking down of a man marrying a woman of a different shade in 1967...to the Fair Housing Act of 1968...and to the killing of a Civil rights leader and a presidential contender in that same year...to first human being to step on the moon (another planet) in 1969.

What a decade that was indeed.
