Students in the Department of History at Virginia Tech explore 1960s history in America — an era of trials and tribulations, protest and power, resistance and reluctance, beauty and blackness.
The 1960s housed a series of unprecedented events that altered the course of American history. Gone were the days of compliance, and a new dawn of change was on horizon. This edited collection tracks this turbulent time of social and political upheaval with a centralized focus on political tension, cultural reform, and defiance of societal expectation.
