Revolution in the Rear View

We hope you enjoyed the collective efforts of the Library faculty in creating the exhibit that was featured during the 2018-2019 academic year, which centered on the most influential parts of the 1960s, a pivotal decade in so many areas.

Revolution in the Rear View: A Look Back at the 60s touched on themes of idealism and alienation, rebellion and backlash, peaceful protests and political assassinations. The display featured a selection of materials from and about the 1960s, including pop culture references to music, film, and television; books on the Civil Rights movement; reports of student demonstrations; examples of advances in technology; books on scientific and artistic achievements; notes on acid experimentation; political magazines from the era; biographical memoirs from global leftist movements; imagery from the Vietnam protests; and more. The exhibit was located on the main floor of the York College Library in the display cases outside the Library’s Administrative Office (3G05).
