The Sixties – How the Decade Shaped America Today
Smithsonian Associates Author Interview Series
Welcome to the Not Old Better Show, I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode number 387.
As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living, author interview series, our guest today is Leonard Steinhorn. Leonard Steinhorn’s expertise includes American politics, culture, and media; the presidency and presidential elections; political strategy and communication; recent American history; the 1960s; race relations in America. He is the author of The Greater Generation: In Defense of the Baby Boom Legacy.
Now, some out there in our audience of Not Old Better Show patrons might wince at some of the more garish staples of the 1960s, like bell bottoms, tie-dyed T-shirts, and unbridled hairstyles—especially when they turn up in our personal photo albums. But even though the decade is now half a century in the past, it’s one that continues to reverberate in our society, politics, culture, and institutions to this day, but our guest today, Leonard Steinhorn, explores the decade’s meaning and its legacy—which may well be the widening dividing line in our politics today
You’ll hear from Leonard Steinhorn here today, and Lenny Steinhorn will be presenting at the Smithsonian Associates program, Tuesday, October 15, 2019.
But, now, please join me in welcoming via internet phone, author Leonard Steinhorn.
