America in the 1960s

By Edmund Lindop

What were Americans doing in the 1960s? Dancing the Twist, listening to the Beatles, watching astronauts land on the moon, and much more.

From civil rights to women's liberation, Americans also took a stand in the 1960s. They tried to stop the war in Vietnam, clean up government, and protect the environment. Even athletes made political protests.

The decade's newsmakers included President John F. Kennedy, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., feminist Betty Friedan, pop artist Andy Warhol, and boxer Muhammad Ali. They helped set the tone for a decade of change, rebellion, and excitement. From Black Power to flower power, from Motown to miniskirts, read about this fascinating decade from start to finish.
