The issues of the Sixties—US-led wars, environmental destruction, racism and civil rights—are still with us today.
In interviews conducted for Finding Tatanka, several prominant Sixties activists shared their candid thoughts on the meaning of the Sixties and the imperatives of the present political moment.
"There was this cohesiveness back then which we don't have now. Right now nobody is really willing to take much of a risk."
"Our problem [in the Sixties] was that we had no cultural options and we had to make them. The problem now is there are so many options that people are without the capacity to choose between them."
"There is so much acceptance of torture by the public now."
"The struggle for justice is a continuing path."
