The 1960s Decade in Photos

Love, Freedom, and Flower Power

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

Gripping photos and text show hippies protesting the Vietnam War, astronauts walking on the moon, and Martin Luther King, Jr., leading the way to equal rights for African-Americans. These are just a few powerful images from the 1960s. It was an unsettling time for America. Soldiers battled in the jungles of Southeast Asia. Inspiring leaders fell victim to assassins’ bullets. A crisis over Soviet missiles pushed the world toward nuclear war. Yet it was also a time of triumph. The civil rights movement succeeded. Humans orbited into space for the very first time. The Beatles changed rock 'n' roll forever. Read more about the 1960s in this photo-driven book.
