1963 and Me
1963 and Me
The year 1963 has become a permanent part of the memory of every American who is old enough to remember the events of that year. That fateful year has meaning for Allen Jones's personal history as well. He had lost his childhood innocence and was gradually becoming more fully aware of things happening around him. Even though his main focus was on establishing his street credibility and getting next to the girls in his neighborhood, Jones could not help being affected by the events of the civil rights movement in the spring and summer of 1963 and by the rising tide of black awareness that was swelling in Harlem and the Bronx. News of major events, like the Birmingham demonstration and the March on Washington, would break through the invisible wall that seemed to separate their local world from the larger one.
