Join us at 5:00 p.m. on January 28, 2011, in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol Museum when WorldCanvass guests explore the counterculture of the 60s and 70s. The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

We’ll start by defining the term counterculture and looking at social history in the United States and Europe in the post WWII era, particularly during the 60s and 70s when many of the values and norms that defined the 50s were rejected and a youth culture challenged traditional views on everything from patriotism, the law and government to marriage, race, gender roles, sexuality and recreational drugs.
