Synopsis

Was Grandma a flower child? Did Grandpa run off to join a commune--they'll never tell!

The decade of the 1960's was one of the most challenging of the twentieth century. The sixties brought us the Summer of Love, the Beatles and the civil rights movement. It was a time of communes and drug experimentation. Take a peek back into this exciting era to discover a generation fighting for massive social, religious & political changes we take for granted today.

Meet the "Sex Professor" and find out why he was fired from a prestigious university for his progressive views on sexuality and courtship. Leo Koch was vilified by the media and by the establishment of the '60's, but his experimentation with social mores  made him a champion for a better society.

 This short historical essay discusses the changes brought to America during the 1960's, and contrasts them with the more strict social codes of the 1950's.  Discussion of consumerism, MacCarthyism and the efforts of a generation to free itself from the constraints of the previous generations and create their own brave new world.
