Abstract

The 1960s were an important period in the life of the United States. This was a decade which was people from the margins of society grouping together to share their common goals and create `movements', which allowed their ideas and images of a better society to be heard by a wider audience. In my thesis, I would like to present the most significant movements and their struggles to achieve their dreams. I will focus on how students participated in campus movements and how they got involved with the organisations that protested against the war in Vietnam. I would also like to show what Black Americans and women did to achieve their goals. I will make an attempt to prove that these movements were successful because they enjoyed the support of the majority of the people of the U.S.. I would also like to present the young generation of the 1960s, the hippies, whose movement was destined to fail as their interests did not coincide with the interests of the rest of the citizens of the United States.
