The 1950s saw the birth of rock, pop and soul, and the 1960s was the greatest decade in pop music history -- and the only decade in which pop merged with other forms and was as concerned with art as they were. The sixties culture also produced fabulous fashions and marvelous movies. TV was in its golden age and sometimes could be seen in "living color." Social upheaval also marked these times, and from those times come the times we live in now, for better or for worse, and some of the era's achievements (civil rights for various groups, for example) are undeniably for the better. Now the world is full of aging baby boomers, still booming along, and when we're gone, history will begin to be rewritten as always, so while we're here, let's tell it like it was!  Pictured on this page:  JFK, Tailgunner Joe and Tiny Tim.  On the NavBar:  Rosa Parks.
