PLEASE don't get caught up in that old one-liner, "If you remember the 60's, then you really didn't have any fun." Most of us remember something of the 60's, if only in a smoke-filled haze of music. Here's an upcoming series of lectures at John Jay College about the history and politics of that period. Free and open to all. Enjoy the Spring and relive your youth !!
