The 1960s and 1970s spawned political and cultural changes because virtually every segment of the America's population had begun to question the way that things were, and struggled for a very different future.  Speaking Out :  Activism and Protest in the 1960s and 1970s is a collection of readings about 21 different activist movements that came of age in the 60s and 70s and their struggles.  The book offers a comprehensive overview of the most important social and political activist groups of these two decades, and locates each group’s complex origins, strengths, weaknesses, and legacy. The activist groups of this period each had their share of successes, and each made their share of mistakes and miscalculations.  Together, they left a most complicated legacy for future generations.
