The Red Scare, UFO'S & Elvis: Long Beach Enters the Atomic Age 

By Claudine Burnett

The baby boomer generation (1946-1964) grew up in a time of dramatic social change.  Their experiences in the Cold War were very different from those of their parents.  These kids of the atomic age wondered if they might be the last children on earth.  They were raised on civil defense films, tales of nuclear annihiliation, and a world taken over by communism.  America had entered the atomic age.  It was also a time of transition.  Rock 'n' roll entered the scene, space flight became a reality, and the public learned not to blindly accept what the government told them.  Author Claudine Burnett will discuss this fascinating era and its ties to Long Beach.
