What was the best/worst fad of the 1960's?
The 1960's were the most turbulent period of social change in our nation's history. At times it felt like the fabric of America was being ripped in several directions. 1962 brought the tensest moment in US history. During the 14 days of the Cuban Missle Crisis, President Kennedy's diplomacy prevented the deepest fear of millions: nuclear war. In 1963, the nation lost its innocence when president John F. Kennedy was Assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The Vietnam War divided America. Pegged as war against the spread of communism, many questioned if the cost in American lives was justified. In the 1960's Civil Rights became an issue that could no longer be avoided. The bravery of Rosa Parks gave oppressed Americans hope and Martin Luther King Jr. struggled peacefully for the equality of all races. Tragically, King was assassinated in 1968 and Robert Kennedy who challenged Americans to get up and change their life for the better was assassinated later that year. The sixties came to a triumphant close in 1969 when the US fulfilled JFK's promise and beat the Soviets in the race to land a man on the moon.
