This Week In '66

 


With Lynn Peril

The first week of August 1966 was not only a microcosm of that whole tumultuous year, but also a harbinger of the twenty-first century. There was gun violence, racial unrest, calls for liberalized abortion laws, a celebrity wedding, and, of course, John Lennon versus the fundamentalists.
