Description

The purpose of this project is to provide an account of the dramatic shift between the conforming 1950’s to the expressive and passionate 1960’s. It teaches readers about the significant events that occurred in this timespan, such as the March on Washington and Woodstock. It also provides depth on events that are not as well known, such as the Moratorium protest. Also, the project provides the perspective of Ellen Celuch, who was present for many of the important events in counterculture history. Ms. Celuch lived in Washington, D.C., during the 1960’s, and was able to witness many protests and other significant events in the counterculture. Her experiences provide an intriguing perspective on the events and feelings that defined the counterculture, as well as give a fascinating viewpoint on the social and political atmosphere of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
