In this year of historic change with the U.S. electing America’s first African American President while in the midst of an unpopular war and the growing strength of gay rights protests, the time has never been better to reexamine the 1960s. The History Channel’s massive set, The 60s, covers all the turmoil and hope of that era through a series of major documentaries, including programs on JFK, Martin Luther King Jr., the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights struggle, the massive protest movements, and the race to the moon. It’s essential viewing for understanding a vital decade in American history as well as for shedding light on our current challenges.
