Taking Back Our Stolen History

1950s

1950s

The 1950s are sometimes referred to as the Golden Age and the peak of the Baby Boomer Years. Color TV was invented, Disneyland opened in California, NASA was created, the first McDonald’s opened, and Elvis Presley gyrated his hips on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The UN orchestrated Korean War began and the faux Cold War continued as the faux space race between the United States and the Soviet Union also began. The 1950s also saw segregation ruled illegal in the U.S. and the beginning of the civil rights movement. Mass inoculations of children begins and the polio vaccine was falsely credited with the eradication of Polio; the first Bilderberg meeting occured; the smearing of Joseph McCarthy who took on the globalist / commuist infiltration of government and other organizations; the CIA’s secret mind control program MKULTRA begins; the Reece Committee uncovers the conspiracy of the tax exempt foundations to take over education, foment wars, and change the American culture to accept communism; Alfred Kinsey begins the sexual revolution with his fraudulent studies, the U.S. Army conducts germ warfare experiments on unsuspecting citizens in dozens of cities around the U.S.; and the government mandates the fluoridation of water in cities throughout the U.S.

" >art, paving the way for the Pop Art of artists like Andy Warhol in the 1960s.

Television had become big competition and in the 1950’s movie studios wanted to get people back into theaters.  They made big movies with high production values, such as The Ten Commandments in 1956 and Ben Hur in 1959.  Alfred Hitchcock was a major force in the decade, with some of his most noteworthy films being made including Rear Window and North by Northwest.  Variety was also the name of the game with many popular musicals, comedies, westerns, and science fiction movies coming out of the 1950’s.

Music

Elvis Presley. Sam Cooke. Chuck Berry. Fats Domino. Buddy Holly. The 1950s saw the emergence of Rock ‘n’ Roll, and the new sound swept the nation. It helped inspire rockabilly music from Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash. People swayed to The Platters and The Drifters. Music marketing, changed, too: For the first time, music began to target youth. On February 3, 1959, American musicians Buddy Holly. Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson died in a plane crash over Clear Lake, Iowa, in what became known as “The Day The Music Died”—an event immortalized in Don McLean’s 1972 song “American Pie.”2

R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll only helped to bridge the gap between blacks and whites and further the civil rights movement. While those genres paved the way for future music, traditional poptraditional pop and country music clung to the past with old standards remaining popular and a multitude of covers topping the charts. Either way, this decade was a time of innovation that helped to influence everything that we listen to on the radio today.
