A unique generation, baby boomers are vastly different from preceding periods in terms of their ingenuous rhetoric. Civil rights, women's rights, LGBT rights, the peace movement, and the green movement all came into being with the boomer generation. Boomers are also noted for their remarkable advances in the arts and entertainment; science; law; politics; public service; sports; the military and technology. In the 1960s, as millions of Americans became teenagers and young adults, boomers created a progressive, initially rebellious "counter culture" that championed change and new ideas. Of course, Madison Avenue, never allowing a huge market to go to waste, disingenuously exploited the "counter culture" with its own term, "the generation gap".
2014 marks an important shift in American culture, as the last of the boomer generation turns age 50 by year’s end. To commemorate this historic moment, American documentary filmmaker and photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders presents The Boomer List film, a wide ranging look at 19 iconic figures — one born in each of the boomer years, 1946- 1964.
