What do you remember about the 1950s? Elizabeth Hardwick said, "The fifties" they seem to have taken place on a sunny afternoon that asked nothing of you except a drifting belief in the moment and its power to satisfy.

Revisit the 1950s through exposure to video, audio, lecture, and discussion. Sessions will focus on: The events, the music, the movies, the television, and the sports. All sessions will be interactive; life preparation is the only prerequisite.

"If we bring a little joy into your humdrum lives, it makes us feel as though our hard work ain’t been in vain for nothin’." Singin’ in the Rain (1952).
