Quest Courses – Spring 2023 / History and Philosophy / SIXTIES
Coordinators: Richard Byrd, Paul Golomb, Diane Reynolds
The 1960s were a time of metamorphosis in U.S. history. The citizenry’s perception changed; African-Americans looked beyond the narrow corridor of civil rights. Women and gays refused to allow themselves to be marginalized any longer. The Vietnam War questioned the entire Military Industrial Complex.
There were changes in the arts, music, film, theatre, etc. People questioned inherent dangers in the air we breathed, the water we drank, and the food we ingested. Overall, the 1960s were the time when people questioned their place in the world, and desired and demanded a better world.
