Just to say the names of these two decades is to bring opposite images to mind--conformity, conservatism and witch hunts in the 1950s, and radicalism, experimentation and freedom in the 1960s. How did one follow the other? What was happening beneath the surface of society in the '50s that set the stage for the '60s? This talk will especially look at how a new left was born out of struggles from both decades that is the closest ancestor to the socialist movement of today.
