This class will explore the 1960s in the United States, a fascinating decade that began with great aspirations and stirred hope for many people for whom the American dream had not become a reality.
The Baby Boom generation began to come of age and many of them rejected traditional values, causing rapid change. As the decade moved on, the tragedy of the war in Vietnam divided the nation and led to a loss of innocence.
This class will cover these themes through lecture, video, music, images, and discussion.
Tom Irvine heads up the technology department for a manufacturing company during the day and teaches classes on history, mystery, and spy novels at night.
