"... worst yet, we attracted to Berkeley, the worst collection of kooks and nuts you've ever seen in your life. Everybody saw this on television, and they had a completely distorted conception of it. They thought, 'what you do is you go to Berkeley, and you riot and you just have a great time; its one big political, sexual, drug feast.'" TC:38.52

Dramatic documentary highlighting the new awareness of the young, middle class white kids, blacks, and women. Lots of good footage showing of the happenings during the sixties, including excerpts from several speeches given by both radicals and politicos. A lot of this program I remembered from back then, but much of it was new to me. Very enjoyable look back.
