  1. The afro hairstyle of 1968:
    Person. “History of the Afro Hairstyle.” LoveToKnow, LoveToKnow Corp, fashion- history.lovetoknow.com/body-fashions/afro-hairstyle.

  2. A very good resource on the power of Gainesville, which goes past just the feminist movement.

    “Radical Women in Gainesville.” UFDC – Radical Women in Gainesville Historical Exhibit : Overview – Radical Women in Gainesville, ufdc.ufl.edu/rwg/overview.

  3. A great, informative article posted on the United Farm Worker’s website about the events that led up to Cesar Chavez’s 1968 fast, the mentality behind conducting the fast, and the important impact it made on members of the United Farm Workers organization and society as a whole.

    “Today in History: Cesar Chavez Began His 25-Day Water-Only Fast in Delano, Calif. on Feb. 11, 1968”: http://ufw.org/today-history-cesar-chavez-began-25-day-water-fast-delano-calif-feb-11-1968/

  4. This website provides a “1968 Rock Music Timeline.” Jimi Hendrix and his work are included in the lists titled “Top 40 Singles of 1968 Worldwide” and “Top 40 Albums of 1968 Worldwide,” which are included on this website. This source is helpful not just because it mentions Jimi Hendrix, but also because it provides a general overview of rock music in 1968.


    1. The source that I mentioned above is helpful for studying music of 1968 in general. When focusing on Jimi Hendrix, the source that I found to be the most helpful provides an overview of Hendrix’s performances of the national anthem in 1968 and beyond.


  5. Elizabeth A. Armstrong and Suzanna M. Crage. Movements and Memory: The Making of the Stonewall Myth. American Sociological Review, 2006, Vol. 71, October. 724-751.

    This source is essential for anyone researching gay collective memory, the LGBT rights movement, or gay activism in the 1960s and 1970s. The authors discuss the memory of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and how it has impacted the memory of other acts of gay resistance.
