     The 60's was full of many things that happen specifically         


 1958 an unforgettable year in unforgettable ways, lots of


 triumphs and Tradagies.



     On January 30: north Vietnam launches the Tet offensive      


 against the united states, thousands died during that war.        




  on  September 30: Boeing introduces the first 747 "jumbo jet"


The world's then-largest passenger aircraft, when you think of


Big airplanes you think of "jumbo jet".     





    October 16: U.s athletes take a stand at the summer Olympics



During the 1968 summer Olympics in Mexico city two black athletes


Staged a silent demonstration against racial discrimination in the


United states.


For the simple defiant act of raising their fists during the


national anthem, the international Olympic committee condemned


 American medalists Tommie smith and john Carlos.



They also wore black socks and no shoes. On their clothes were


 badges of the Olympic project for human rights.




One thing that was popular in 1968 was the black and white


Television, majority of Americans watch T.v today, can you imagine


Watching T.v in black and white today?


Major changes have happen to television.




1968 was the beginning of the type writer and letters were being


Typed I did not use a type writer for this manuscript but


Manuscripts was mainly done on type writers I use a computer with


Type writer style.
