Home 1960's Connections

 

My  focus of study was on student protest groups that emerged from the political and social unrest of the 1960's. On campuses nationwide, students increasingly called for US withdrawl from the war. Meanwhile, inner city black ghettos were breeding grounds for violence and police brutality. In the wake of anti-war sentiment as well as the civil rights movement, three main student protest groups emerged: the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), the Black Panther Party, and the Yippies. All three of these groups sought change in one way or another, and proved that they would use any means necessary to get it. Following are descriptions of these three groups.

Digital Images of these three groups can be found at the following sites:
