The '60s:
Weekend Journeys

Experience the full impact of the 1960s through an unprecedented citywide festival: music, film, dance, theater, talks, and museum exhibits exploring the watershed decade in American history, a decade that changed America in ways that still reverberate in our lives today—but how? With more than 35 partner organizations across the city, we focus together on the decisive moments of our country’s history, and look ahead toward a more inspiring future.

Discover the following weekend journeys to conveniently assist you in planning an unforgettable day or weekend in New York City, and celebrate this pivotal decade and its influence in the change of tomorrow.

Feb 3–5, 2018: Sounds of Change

On Monday, February 5 at 8 PM, take a journey to the crossroads of music, justice, and social change in the 1960s—the struggles, celebration, and reconciliation—with living legends and rising artists from the worlds of folk, rock, soul, and R&B (including Anthony Hamilton, Otis Redding III, Vernon Reid, Dionne Warwick, Naturally 7, and others) joined by a chorus, singing the anthems that defined an era.
