About the Sixties

The space race, the cold war, "free love," civil rights and more: The decade of the 1960s shaped our history -- and changed the world.

In collaboration with Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog, CNN explores perhaps the most transformative decade of the modern era in a 10-part documentary series and brings new insights into how those events shaped today.

The full 10-part series begins May 29 on CNN.
