Partial that survive an old beta tape circa 1981. The show looked back in the past and asked "where were you in ...?" ... covered National and NYC events.

Part One (separate thread) looks at:
Martin Luther King's march on DC
Women's Fashion
Christmas in New York

Part Two (separate thread) looks at:
NYC newspaper strike (114 days)
Opening of the brando film "Ugly American" (first Hollywood film on American foreign policy)

1. I was in first grade...
I think I remember the politics because my folks were so involved. Political debate around the dinner table was as common as salt.

I suspect pictures of us will look funny to others in forty years too :)

3. 5th grade
The main thing that I and everyone then remembers is of course the Kennedy assassination. They brought in television sets into our classroom when it happened. This only lasted about half an hour before they told us all to go home, as best I can remember they didn't tell us why. Four days of television with nothing but assassination coverage on our 3 channels black and white set. I was watching live when Ruby shot Oswald. Memories that had no comparison until 9/11.

4. I was actually in my third year of high school.
I was 14. I'd just moved to Toronto, and was wandering around, a farm girl in the big city.

And yes, I remember JFK and RFK dying, I remember the clothes and the music and the wars. We don't seem to have come all that far, frankly.
