Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject History - America, Syracuse University, course: Senior Seminar: America in the 1960s, language: English, abstract: Throughout the 1960s and into the 70s, youth organizations put democracy on their shoulders and carried it back to the forefront of American society. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) kicked off the wave of Baby Boomer activism in the United States. SDS helped spawn a nationwide democratic revolution, but no revolutionary outfit did more for the democratic process than the incomparable Youth International Party. Through the use of guerilla theater and manipulation of the mass media, the short-lived Youth International Party (Yippies) and its founding members revitalized American democracy by staging iconic, self-governed protests, including the unforgettable 1968 Democratic National Convention.

Berkeley Street Theatre chronicles Christian World Liberation Front's 1969-1975 ministry to the counterculture. Founded by Jack Sparks, CWLF was featured in the June 1971 Time Magazine's epic "Jesus Revolution" edition. Reverend Billy Graham sponsored the CWLF outreach and referred to CWLF as a highly effective outreach to the counterculture. The book included a foreword by David W. Gill, former CWLF leader, scholar, and author, contributing chapters from BST's members: Gene Burkett, Charlie Lehman, Susan Dockery Andrews, Father James Bernstein, and Jeanne DeFazio, editor of the book. Part Two of this work outlines Christian Guerilla theater following the timeline of BST with contributing chapters from: JMD Myers, Joanne Petronella, Jozy Pollock, Olga Soler, and Sheri Pedigo. William David Spencer's afterword details the cultural contributions of the Jesus movement. This book will appeal to the baby boom generation as well as millennials. It is a resource work for anyone interested in religious history, Christian theater and the arts, and in how baby boomers embraced the Jesus Movement. The photos of BST's Sproul Plaza performances will charm all readers.

Donald Lazere brings together selections from nearly forty of the most prominent Marxist, feminist, and other leftist critics of American mass culture-from a dozen academic disciplines and fields of media activism. The collection will appeal to a wide range of students, scholars, and general readers.
