1968: When After All, It Was You and Me

"Any war that requires the suspension of reason as a necessity for support is a bad war." Norman Mailer (1923-2007), The Armies of the Night: History as a Novel/The Novel as History (1968).

Howard L. Bingham, Black Panthers 1968 (2009 and 2010), aka Howard L. Bingham's Black Panthers 1968. Not to be confused with Ruth-Marion Baruch, Pirkle Jones and Kathleen Neal Cleaver, Black Panthers 1968 (2002).

The Stonewall Riots were a year off. Greta Schiller and Robert Rosenberg's 1984 documentary Before Stonewall covers the gay and lesbian rights movement before 1969.
