Abstract:

Last in a three-part series in which acclaimed documentary filmmakers present ten pivotal moments in American history and their often unforeseen repercussions. This segment of three documentary films records events that changed the way Americans saw themselves. Albert Einstein's letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt on July 16, 1939, urged the development of the atomic bomb through the Manhattan Project. Elvis Presley's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Sept. 9, 1956, signified a whole new culture that involved the emergence of television, teenage independence, sexuality, race relations, and a new form of music. Freedom Summer of 1964 focused national attention on Mississippi when three civil rights workers (two white and one black) were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan on June 21, 1964, leading eventually to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
