Instead of an excerpt this week, I thought I’d show you some images from the late Sixties. The footage in the video trailer was shot at the Democratic National Convention in 1968 by Chicago filmmaker and artist Tom Palazzolo, who kindly let me use it. The passion and the intensity on all sides is still apparent. At least to me.
While I realize this technically isn’t part of Boomer Lit the way it’s being defined, it certainly takes me back to a place and time when we thought we could change the world. We didn’t, of course, and much of Set the Night on Fire tries to explain why.
Now that you’ve watched this trailer, be sure to hop over here where you’ll find other Boomer Lit offerings by a variety of authors.
