The 1920s were both a "roaring" and a turbulent decade for the United States. A thriving interest in all things modern--technology, jazz, social mores--clashed with a cultural backlash against growing multiculturalism and changing values.
A time of affluence. A time of fear. During Eisenhower's eight years in office, the United States fought a war in Korea, fretted about communism in Hollywood, and began a space program.
The 1960s might be the most tumultuous decade in American history, when simmering resentments boiled over into rage against the status quo. From the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the My Lai Massacre, after the bloody Sixties the United States would never be the same.

Acoustics (from Greek ακουστικός pronounced akoustikos meaning "of or for hearing, ready to hear") is the science that studies sound, in particular its production, transmission, and effects. The science of acoustics has many applications which are dependent upon the nature of the sound that is to be produced, transmitted or controlled.
The United States has a long history of activists seeking social, political, economic, and other changes to Americaalong with a history of other activists trying to prevent such changes. American activism covered a wide range of causes and utilized many different forms of activism. American sociopolitical activism became especially prominent during the period of societal upheaval which began during the 1950s. The African American civil rights movement led the way, soon followed by a substantial anti-war movement opposing American involvement in the Vietnam War, and later by vigorous activism involving womens issues, gay rights, and other causes. The United States remains a land of nearly constant change, and activists play a significant role in the ongoing evolution of American democracy. It seems likely that Americans will remain enthusiastic activists in the future. This exhibition is part of the Digital Library of Georgia.
