You probably know all these films, but here they are: "Operation
Abolition," the House Committee on Un-American Activities' own version
of the student demonstrations in San Francisco in 1960 that opened the
Sixties among whites. "Operation Correction," the ACLU's stodgy, factual
dissection of the lies in the former, achieved largely by time shifts.
"House Committee on Un-American Activities," a docudrama by Robert
Cohen, with HUAC's whole history from the late 1930s on, and into the
Sixties. The best film on this theme. "Berkeley in the Sixties." "KPFA
On the Air," which is a remarkable history of the U.S. from WW II
through the end of the centuries, heavy on the Sixties.

-- ======================================================== Do you teach in the social sciences? Consider my SAYING NO TO POWER (Creative Arts, Berkeley, 1999), for course use. It was written as a social history of the U.S. for the past three-quarters of a century through the eyes of a participant observer in most progressive social movements (I'm 84), and of the USSR from the standpoint of a Sovietologist (five earlier books) knowing that country longer than any other in the profession. Therefore it is also a history of the Cold War. Positive reviews in The Black Scholar, American Studies in Scandinavia, San Francisco Chronicle, forthcoming in Tikkun, etc. Chapters are up at http://www.billmandel.net ========================================================
