I know I am a baby boomer at the end of the booming season, because I remember being 3 years old and seeing on the black and white tv regarding President Kennedy's assasination. Also remember the civil rights marches.

I'm sort of a pre-boomer since I was born during WWII instead of after.  However, I remember all the things mentioned by Astraea and more.  I didn't have a Beatles poster on my wall, that was my younger sister.  Actually, my mother didn't allow things to be pinned or taped to the wall, but my mirror was covered with photos of Eddie Fisher, Tab Hunter, Rock Hudson, Robert Wagner and Johnny Mathis.  My mother had a problem with my crush on Johnny Mathis so I think that made me one of the first "civil rights" protestors.

You remember:

 

  • Where you were when President Kennedy was assassinated,
  • When Martin Luthor King was assassinated,
  • When Bobby Kennedy was assassinated,
  • Viet Nam War protests & sit-ins,
  • Real hippies, not just the cleaned up faux recent versions,
