remembering the 1950s
The 1950s was an era of prosperity and optimism; it was a marvelous time to be a teenager.
However, it was also an era of great conflict.
The “Cold War” with Russia.
An uncle who served as a marine in the Korean Conflict.
The Civil Rights movement began.
We were jitterbugging and carefree, yet we were also awakening to see inequality and injustice.
Stability was fragile – and then the explosion of the 1960s!
