The main focus of 60s news in America was on the successful progression, and devastating casualties, of the Civil Rights Movement. John F. Kennedy, one of the most popular Presidents of all-time and an advocate of civil rights, was sworn into office in 1961, before being assassinated only two years later by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in his presidential limousine. Later in the decade, Martin Luther King, the figurehead of the Civil Rights Movement who had orated his “I Have a Dream” speech to over a million people three months before Kennedy’s death, would be assassinated himself at a motel in Memphis.
Another huge event in the 1960s was the Apollo 11 landing, which saw Neil Armstrong become the first human being to set foot on the surface of the moon. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page.
