Steve Golin, professor emeritus of Bloomfield College and one of our most beloved Adult School instructors, chats about his latest book, "The Women Who Invented the Sixties: Ella Baker, Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson, and Betty Friedan," with Jerise Fogel of Montclair State University. Q&A period to follow. Book signing and sale.
"While there were many protests in the 1950s—against racial segregation, economic inequality, urban renewal, McCarthyism, and the nuclear buildup—the movements that took off in the early 1960s were qualitatively different. They were sustained, not momentary; they were national, not just local; they changed public opinion, rather than being ignored. "Women Who Invented the Sixties" tells the story of how four women helped define the 1960s and made a lasting impression for decades to follow."—University Press of Missisisippi
"Baker, Jacobs, Carson and Friedan served as role models for those who continue to challenge the status quo in the quest for a better world. In his thoughtful study, Golin gives them the credit they earned."—Robert D. Parmet, New York Labor History Association
