Remember the 1970’s
The 1970’s was an unusual time. Memorable styles, music, and full of optimism.

With the 1960’s over, leaving behind the Vietnam War (it winded down in the 1970’s) and assassinations of popular leaders.  The deaths of President Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, made everyone eager for a change, anxious for the 70’s. We all loved those blaxploitation films like Shaft, Foxy Brown and Cleopatra Jones, or music like disco, funk or the beginnings of hip-hop, the 1970’s were unique.

 

 

The politics of the 1970’s was at very least unusual.  The President’s men spied and lied before he quit. Richard Nixon famously suggested that “the American people have got to know if their President is a crook”.  Washington Post reporters, Woodward and Bernstein, were “hot” on the trail of administration officials that eventually went to jail. Never before in the history of the United States, had we seen the President quit. On August 9, 1974, Nixon resigned the office of President.

After loosing nearly 60,000 men and women in Vietnam, the United States just decided to forget the whole thing. After nearly twenty years the United States military officially left Vietnam on April 30, 1975. Our government, wrongly believed a military solution was needed to “push back” the growth of communism in Southeast Asia.

Then there was the auto industry. Once powerful, the world leading Detroit car industry saw the beginning of major changes. Two decades later, the once largest company in the world, General Motors was bankrupt. Fuel efficient Japanese cars was an answer to rapidly rising price of fuel.

Remember bell bottom pants and afros? The 70’s truly changed the world!
