Movie Details

This video is part of a series that examines some of the influential sociopolitical movements that shaped the 20th century. This program turns its attention to the Baby Boomers, who came of age in the 1960s. Their youthful rebellion against societal constraints and the war in Vietnam revolutionized America. Their rock & roll music shocked their elders and spread around the world. Personal and sexual freedom was the byword. This program covers the antiwar movement, the civil rights movement, the drug and music culture, hippies, yippies, environmental concerns, and more. Archival film footage and interviews are used to tell the story. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
