Liberation kissed
Mother Africa.
Nigeria, Niger, Madagascar, Mali
Congo, Cameroon felt freedom
Ethiopia coup
Selassie's dethronement

Korean revolution
Students' achievement
Cloud of unity capped the church
When Bishop of Canterbury hugged Pope
Women's breakthrough
When Bandaranaike
Became world first female prime minister
Einchman's blood quenched Israel's revenge thirst

O Jeff Kennedy, we missed you!
"I have a dream “assassins why?
A speech rattled segregation
As Beatles ignite melody
Thousands dissolve
In ecstasy

    HI, Joseph. I really love how you had such passion about the 60's shown by the things you mention historically here.
