Vietnam war protesters in front of the White House, Washington DC, in 1968. As you can see, not all protesters were "hippies". The signs say No more - stop the war, Eartha Kitt speaks for the women of America, and Stop the Draft. Eartha Kitt, a well-known singer and actress, spoke up at a luncheon at the White House and took President Johnson to task about the Vietnam war. It wasn't a popular stance at the time.
