Overview

Packed with photographs and reminiscences of an important decade in the evolution of this American metropolis, New Orleans in the Sixties is a unique accomplishment that will interest both residents and lovers of the Crescent City.

The 1960s was a time of tremendous social, political, and economic change. New Orleans was no exception, and the decade brought tremendous changes to the city--even the skyline began to change. From the integration of public schools in 1961 to the role of New Orleanians in the first manned moon landing in 1969, from the Saints marching into the Superdome to the Super Krewes, New Orleans in the Sixties shows in vivid pictorial style how the Crescent City was then.
