Media, Education, And America's Counter-Culture Revolution

Overview

The 1960s and 1970s was a time of repression and a time of freedom, a time of ferment rarely seen before in this country. People marched-in, sat-in, loved-in. The will of the people persuaded one president not to run for reelection, forced another president to resign, and ended an iniquitous war.

Overview

The 1960s and 1970s was a time of repression and a time of freedom, a time of ferment rarely seen before in this country. People marched-in, sat-in, loved-in. The will of the people persuaded one president not to run for reelection, forced another president to resign, and ended an iniquitous war. Social and political revolutions took place: Civil rights, women's liberation, protests against the irrelevancies of education and social norms, a counter-culture revolution on the part of young people. The keys to both protest and change were communications and education.

Dr. Robert L. Hilliard not only observed, but participated in and affected America's counter-culture revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, from the vantage point of several key federal government positions in Washington. Based on his papers and speeches from that period, with current commentary added, this is a revealing look at media and education's lost and found opportunities during that period, and what must be done so that they serve America's needs adequately in the new millennium.

During the 1960s and 1970s, Hilliard (media arts, Emerson College, Boston) was serving in a number of US government media and education positions in Washington, and participated in the counter-culture revolution that encompassed the civil rights and women's liberation movements and protests against the irrelevancies of education and social norms. Here he compiles and comments on some of the hundred of speeches and papers advocating education and media reform that he delivered at the time. Annotation c.
