This week we continued the discussion of how the Cold and Korean Wars of the 1950's impacted pop culture. We examined movements that began in the 50's, such as the birth of rock & roll, the grassroots beginnings of civil rights and the wild teen movement. We were transported back to childhood and teen life in the 1950's by listening to rock & roll, having a hula hoop contest and hanging out at our own soda fountain. Click the button bellow to listen to some top rock & roll hits of the 1950's.
