Those were the days...

January 20, 1999

Next month, a new TV mini-series begins airing about that mythological decade, the Sixties. It promises to be full of melodrama involving assassinations, anti-war protests, drugs, sex and sit-ins. But it's going to lack a key element: you.

The '60s were not just a time of civil strife; they were a time of ordinary folks coping with a changing world. Like learning to dance the watusi, trying to play "I Am the Walrus" backward on the record player, or learning to love love beads. It's this kind of day-to-day Sixties we want to celebrate. And we need your help.

Send us a picture of yourself from those times -- dressed in '60s clothes or doing some '60s thing. Tell us briefly when and where the photo was shot and what was going on. (Photos cannot be returned.) Or, in 100 words or less, tell us your most memorable '60s moment.

Send your photos or stories to: The Sixties, Features Department, Baltimore Sun, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore 21278; or e-mail us at michael.gray@baltsun.com.

Deadline for entries is Jan. 29. Please include your name, address and daytime telephone number.

Pub Date: 1/20/99
