Created with PowerPoint 2010. This PowerPoint offers a vibrant and dynamic presentation of the events that shaped the revolution of the 1960’s in America. There are 47 slides. The discussion begins with the election of John F. Kennedy and the optimism and hope that his presidency generated. After his assassination and the subsequent losses of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, the discussion turns to the rise in violence, rebellion, and protest. Lyndon’s Johnson’s anguish over the protests against the Viet Nam War leading to his decision to forgo a second term in office is portrayed. There is a depiction of the traditional family values that were shirked by the youth of the 60’s and their disillusionment with those values expressed through their hair, clothing, and reckless behavior. Hippies’ expression through music is addressed with several examples of protest music provided. Contributors to the rebellion, Allen Ginsberg and Timothy Leary are introduced. Information about the Civil Rights act leads to discussion of Women’s Liberation, with a focus on Betty Friedan. Also included is a look at the TV and movies of the 60’s. There are over 90 relevant graphics. There are links to the following YouTube videos: Creedence Clearwater Revival “Fortunate Son,” The Beatles “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and “Revolution,” Jefferson Airplane “Volunteers.” There are embedded videos also: Elvis “Houndog” (after a discussion of music’s becoming controversial), Bob Dylan “Blowin’ in the Wind,” Timothy Leary- an excerpt from a speech at UCLA, Andy Griffith. The Byrds, “Turn, Turn, Turn.” This is a vibrant and dynamic presentation with attractive formatting and large clear font. A great product. Thank you for your consideration.
