History 306 Spring 2008 Professor Gold Essay Assignment Last month presidential contender Hillary Clinton tried to evade responsibility for some unfortunate items in her college wardrobe by saying, “It wasn’t my fault. It was the ’60s.” * But in American discourse “the sixties” means more than regrettable clothing styles. The phrase often evokes two interconnected social upheavals: the civil rights struggle and the New Left. By now you have read, heard and viewed a good deal of information about both movements. ** Your assignment is to write a 5-7 pp. analytic essay that compares and contrasts the two. You may wish to consider the following dimensions of each social movement: 4 participants’ concepts of freedom 5 their notions of moral obligation 6 their engagement with Cold War ideology and politics 7 their interactions with government authorities and other “powers that were” That’s not an exhaustive list of potential themes, so feel free to add others if you wish. I encourage you to discuss at least three such themes in an essay of this length.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
