The 1960s were a time of change - a decade marked equally by progress and defeat. The new style of President John F, Kennedy, John Glenn's earth orbit, President Johnson's innovative domestic policies, and the civil rights and women's movements infused America with new life. By contrast events such as the shocking assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King, and Booby Kennedy; riots; and the stalemate of the Vietnam War overshadowed the buoyant mood, breeding frustration and anger.
