Summary
A sweeping account of the 1960s, told decade by decade by author Frye Gaillard who was a Vanderbilt college student in the early 1960s, and whose experiences there informed his lifetime as a journalist. He explores the competing story arcs of tragedy and hope through the political and social movements of the times, but he also examines the cultural manifestations of change in music, literature, art, religion, and science--and so we meet not only the Brothers Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, but also Gloria Steinem, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Harper Lee, Mister Rogers, Rachel Carson, James Baldwin, Andy Warhol, Thomas Merton, George Wallace, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Berrigan Brothers
