You have the women’s movement, the civil rights movement,the Kennedy murders,Dr. Martin Luther King, The Black Panthers, Patty Hearst, The Grey Panthers, Hell’s Angels, The VietNam War, the Nation of Islam. Any one of these should take at least five pages double spaced, lots of online resources, books in the library and there is a tv documentary about JFK called “JFK: A President Betrayed”. Have fun and I hope you discover and learn a lot!
