The 1960s was a period of revolution and change in politics, music and society around the globe. It began in America and Britain, and spread to continental Europe and other nations of the globe. The 1960s was an era of protest. The 1960s witnessed a dramatic new phase of the civil rights movement. In the civil rights movement blacks and whites protested against discrimination based on their ethnicity background (Gilmore, Glenda and Sugrue, 2016). The struggle for civil rights redefined the ‘60s ever since four black students sat down at a whites-only lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, in February 1960 & declined to leave.
