need help for a school project on the 50's - 60's

i know this has nothing to do with beauty, which this site is about, but if anyone could help out, i'd be very grateful.

basically, i have a history project on mid 50's - mid 60's. i think that period is very interesting, yet i know least about it. i'm supposed to hold a presentation on my project and it needs to be interesting, not just historical facts. so i've chosen to do lifestyle and culture (art, etc). my parents were both born in the beginning of the 70's and i have no grandparents that my family is in touch with, so i have no one to ask.

if you know anything about that period, in america AND wider, i'd be very thankful. life of the young, typical music styles, what a basic day for an average family would look like. anything you know about that period. yes, i've already done my research on the internet, but i want more stories that people know from their parents, grandparents... even a smallest fact is helpful. :)

Ok I love the 60's alot!!! I think you should do your progject about "Greasers" and "Socs" They were the two groups in society and they often had fight and rumbles and stuff like that. Its pretty much the comon day Cliques and Gangs.. theres a book called the outsiders and its extremely good!!! It talks about that stuff o and also do music that's always fun!

My grandparents were in High School and college during the 1960s and still have a lot of old record albums. The music was fantastic: really good guitar playing and stuff. The other thing you might want to write about, since you obviously love fashion and style, was the big changes in fashion that took place in that period with jeans and miniskirts becoming popular. Have you ever heard of the model Twiggy? There are lots of sites on the Internet that should provide information. But let me know if you want more infor about music and fashion and I'll be glad to provide more info.

thank you. i'd love to find out more about fashion and music. i already have a few sources in music, such as what was popular, but i don't know nothing else about fashion than what you just told me, about the drastic change. i mean, fashion has its ways of affecting society as well. if you have time and see this, i'd love to hear more about fashion at that time. :)
