V iews A liberal and a conservative find precursors
to the Age of Aquarius in the Eisenhower era How Did the '50s Ever Beget the '60s?
E.J. Dionne
N ostalgia for the 1950s looms large in American politics, crossing partisan and philosophical lines. The Right yearns for the stability, order, and authority ascribed to that decade. The Left recalls the period as a time of equitably distributed economic growth, strong labor unions, and some semblance of loyalty between employer and employee. So how could the stability of the 1950s give way to the uproar of the 1960s? Because the ’50s were not nearly as stable as they looked. The ’60s could be seen as the working out (not always successfully) of the many tensions the 1950s embodied: in family life, on racial matters, in politics, and in the culture. In Women and the Common Life , Christopher Lasch flatly declares that the family "where the husband goes out to work and the wife stays home...was a mid-twentieth-century innovation." Previously, less affluent women had always had to work, and more affluent women played active, if often unpaid, public roles. Betty Friedan’s powerful feminist polemic, The Feminine Mystique (1963), could be seen as a rational response to "the plight of suburban women" cut off from involvement in the public sphere. Something had to give in the organization of women’s roles, and the result was the rise of feminism. The country’s huge commitment in the ’50s to the education of both men and women also fed feminism. It was absurd to pretend that large numbers of educated women would choose to remain disengaged from public life.

Jim Crow First Hand Narratives
People who lived through the Jim Crow years offer keen and very personal perspective on how Jim Crow shaped, and still shapes, their lives. These narratives are drawn from a sampling of men and women from all over the nation and from all walks of life. Their stories provide insight into the complexity of the Jim Crow experience, its brutal and personal reality, and the meaning of the words "enduring Jim Crow." No two stories are alike, but all depict an aspect of human experience during this shameful period of historya period that affected us all, regardless of race, gender, or economic status.

Sharing Your Witness to History
Sometimes, re-living the past is a GOOD thing! By Roberta Rand Have you ever considered that just by virtue of the years you've lived, you are a walking, breathing history book? If you're between 50 and 65, you may remember the end of World War II, game show scandals, "Elvis the Pelvis," dancing to the music on American Bandstand and watching the Beatles' first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show. You may have been the first kid on your block to own saddle shoes, a hula hoop or a Daniel Boone coonskin cap. If you're between 50 and 65, you may remember the end of World War II, game show scandals, "Elvis the Pelvis" and watching the Beatles' first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show. You lived through the days of fallout shelters, the Space Race and the Cold War. You remember Dick and Jane, the Edsel (the car that looked like it was sucking a lemon) and the first TV sets. You loved Lucy and marvelled when "Bonanza" was broadcast "in living color." You also witnessed the turmoil of Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement, and the assassinations of JFK, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In short, you are a veritable encyclopedia of people, places and events that children nowadays experience mainly through dry-as-dust textbooks. Imagine making history come alive for kids by sharing what past historic events meant to you — when they were actually happening. You can bring dimension and meaning to history simply by recounting who you were and the times you grew up in.
