1964

We recently added “1964” to the DBRL collection. The film was shown earlier this year on the PBS series American Experience. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:

It was the year of the Beatles and the Civil Rights Act; of the Gulf of Tonkin and Barry Goldwater’s campaign for the presidency; the year that Americans learned smoking was bad for their health and Cassius Clay became Mohammed Ali; the year that cities across the country erupted in violence and Americans tried to make sense of the assassination of their president. Based on The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964, the film will follow some of the most prominent figures of the time.
