Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the 1960's. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

At the beginning of the 1960's, many Americans believed they were standing at the dawn of a golden age. On January 20, 1961, the handsome and charismatic John F. Kennedy became president of the United States.

His confidence was expressed as “the government possessed big answers to big problems” seemed to set the tone for the rest of the decade. However, that golden age never materialized. On the contrary, by the end of the 1960's it seemed that the nation was falling apart.

In the summer of 1969, more than 400,000 young people trooped to the Woodstock music festival in upstate NY for a harmonious 3 days that seemed to represent the best of the peace-and-love generation. By the end of the decade, community and consensus lay in tatters.

The era’s legacy remains mixed. It brought: Empowerment and polarization. Resentment and liberation. But it has certainly become a permanent part of our political and cultural lives.

The presentation covers the following:

The New Frontier
The Great Society
Other Programs
The War in Vietnam
The Draft & Protests
Fight for Civil Rights
The Civil Rights Act
Problems Not Solved
Women’s Movement
The Counter Culture
Era’s Legacy
End of Presentation

This is one of many power point presentations I offer in my store under the heading.... The 1960's.
