Emory Class of 1964 A College Story by Ernest Harben

Available on Amazon or Kindle

A story of Michael, a college freshman in 1960, and his classmates as they make their way through four years of college. Some have their childhood beliefs and plans come into conflict with reality.  Lyndon Johnson, and Martin Luther King, Jr. come to Atlanta for speeches.  The civil rights movement is taking shape in Atlanta. The Bay of Pigs, Cuban missile crisis, beginnings of War in Vietnam, President Kennedy’s election, term of office and assassination all take place in those four years. The class has to deal with all these events, as well as deciding on their careers and plans for their lives. They have adventures, changes and discoveries in their personal lives as well.  They find out life is not quite what they thought when they left home for college.
