    The 1960's were a tumultuous time in United States history. The sixties saw the rise of the Civil Rights movement that sought for equality and social reform for Americans of African descent. Also taking place in the 1960's were the Vietnam war, riots, poverty, antiwar protests, the "generation gap" and political assassinations.

    These events and issues can be paralleled with today's American society through the continuation of rioting and protests, the continuation of extreme poverty, a technology induced generation gap (between Generation X, Millenials, and Baby Boomers who had nowhere near as much access to technology and information), and the continuance of Women's, African Americans, Latinos/Latinas, & other peoples of color's struggle to achieve racial equality and justice in a society created for and by Caucasian men.
