Can you describe the 1960s?

Posted at 3:51 PM on November 26, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Inspired by MPR's Midday: Brokaw struggles to sum up the '60s, I fired up a quick discussion. Some answers:

"I saw Tom Brokaw interviewed about the book, and just bought it for my dad for Christmas! The 60's to me...peace, love and rock and roll!"

"From what I remember, I think I had a good time."

"aside from the brave men and woman who were sent off to fight a war, which was started by a lie, by LBJ, the 60's was an era of doped up losers."

Join the online discussion to share your own definition of the generation, or just the decade. Or review Brokaw's new book: Boom!: Voices of the Sixties Personal Reflections on the '60s and Today.
