(1962) A senator, who became famous for killing a notorious outlaw, returns for the funeral of an old friend and tells the truth about his deed. The 1960’s was a watershed era in American history and the spirit of the decade never truly left us. We hope to address this momentous time through rich programming for all ages that commemorates, celebrates, and explores the 1960’s.
