In the Summer of 1969, after a decade of roiling social upheaval that included assassinations, urban race riots, violent ant-war demonstrations, campus sit-ins, anti-draft protests and student strikes- a remarkable sea change occurred in American Society over the course of six weeks. If you were alive at the time you will remember that summer as one of shocking occurrences, historic accomplishments and massive celebration. One after the next: from the deaths of world-famous Judy Garland and an unknown named Mary Jo Kopeckne, to the birth of Gay Rights at the Stonewall Riots, the historic Woodstock Festival for Peace, and the jaw-dropping Walk On The Moon- it seemed that every week a landmark event took place. Now, 45 years later, these events still resonate in our culture and echo through today’s worlds of crime, politics, civil rights, scientific exploration and music.
