Oreign and domestic policy issues from the 60s and today

I have to advise the current president (without political bias) on one current foreign and one current domestic policy issue, using what we took away from a similar foreign and domestic issue that occurred during the 1960s.

I was going to do African-American Civil Rights in the 60s TO current gay marriage rights and the war in vietnam during the 60s TO the current war in afghanistan. (Although if you can write better on other topics that is fine)

I can send a picture of the project rubric/explanation through email
