In Unit 7, we will focus on the effects of World War II and the United States involvement in the Cold War on domestic policies and society. This is a time of fun and excitement, but also tension and change.

The 1950s brought with it an emergence of culture and spending; Rock-n-roll, television, a growing and successful middle-class. These were times of perceived happiness, overshadowing racial and social difficulties, and creating a polarized society. The events unfolding overseas during the Cold War will also fuel the instability arising at home.

The 1960s is often referenced as the Counterculture Movement, a turbulent era that brought with it liberal ideas and movements. From the protests over Vietnam and the Civil Rights Movement, to the rise of minority rights for Native Americans, Hispanic farmers, and women, it was a time to voice opinions in the spirit of change and social justice.
