How Youth Changed America in the SixtiesUnknown - 2007
Laban Hill, author of the acclaimed Harlem Stomp, is back with an in-depth exploration of America in the 1960's and the young people who built a new world around them and changed our society significantly. Like Harlem Stomp, America Dreaming is an educational and visual look into a time of energy and influence. Covering subjects such as the civil rights movement, hippie culture, black nationalism, and the feminist movement, Hill paints a sprawling picture of life in the '60's and shows how teenagers were on the forefront of the societal changes that occurred during this grand decade. America Dreaming is a virtual time capsule, full of photos, song lyrics, poetry, art, protest posters, sixties lingo and iconofraphy that will give readers an authentic and inspiring experience.
