The Day the Culture Died : A Critical Reflection on How the 1960s Radically Shaped 21st Century America
The Day The Culture Died is a critical reflection on how the 1960s radically shaped 21st century America. "February 7, 1964 was a cold and cloudy day at New York's recently renamed John F. Kennedy Airport... Pan American... Flight 101 arrived from London's Heathrow Airport at 1:20pm. On board were four young British rock stars from Liverpool..." What? American culture died you say - over 50 years ago? Surely you jest! How did this happen - by accident, natural causes, suicide, murder? Did we miss it, what were the consequences and what did the Beatles have to do with it? Between early 1964 and late 1969 most aspects of American culture experienced massive and unprecedented upheaval. Seeds planted in the fertile soil of that turmoil and tragedy continue to bear fruit today. The Day The Culture Died explores how America became what she never meant to be.
