The 1960s in India.
In no specific order:
The decade started with Jawaharlal Nehru as Prime Minister and ended with Indira Gandhi as the PM.  From 1964-1966, we had Lal Bahadur Shastri (pictured here in 1964) as the Prime Minister.
In 1961 Goa was annexed becoming India’s 21st state. Portuguese enclaves like Daman & Diu also became a part of India as Union Territories.
The country was at war twice in the decade: The Sino-Indian war of 1962  and the Indo-Pakistan war of 1965.
Shastri was responsible for the Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan slogan of the 1960s.  Shastri’s visit to Amul was the first step in Operation Flood aka White Revolution that began in the 1960s and was intended to make India milk-sufficient. Per this link the Amul Girl was born in 1966.
Around 1961-1963 also saw the introduction of high yielding rice and wheat in India (see Green Revolution).  Part of agricultural policy post this decade was also a result of the Bihar famine of 1966-67.
The banks were nationalised in 1969.
The Naxalbari uprising took place in 1967.
The Dhori colliery disaster took place in 1965. It is listed amongst the world’s worst mine accidents.
Hindi is declared the official language of the nation in 1965 for all government transactions. Following anti-Hindi riots, English is adopted as an associate language in the same year.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad is founded in 1964, the Shiv Sena in 1967.
The National Institute of Design was set up in 1961 subsequent to The India Report (by Charles and Ray Eames) in 1958.
The State of Art in 1960s India.
Reita Faria becomes the first Indian woman to win an international beauty pageant.
The fashions you have already seen.  The big stars of the decade - Sadhana, Asha Parekh, Sharmila Tagore, Saira Banu et al - sported tightly draped saris, tightly draped churidar-kameez, big hair, pale lips and dramatic eye make-up. The Sadhana fringe was a bonafide craze. Sharmila Tagore rocked a bikini. And there was Helen, the cabaret queen of the country.
Ray, Ghatak and Mrinal Sen worked through the 60s but by the end of the decade you see the beginnings of the parallel cinema movement of the 70s and 80s in films like Gejje Pooje, Sara Akash etc with Bhuvan Shome being a commercial success. [X] 
Ads from the 60s in India and Pakistan - X, X, X
Rock in the 60s. The Sri Lankans visit. And the Beatles in India.
A general sum up of the decade through foreign eyes.
1960s. Sari History.

Also, whites didn’t end slavery. Abraham Lincoln didn’t care about Black people and slavery until he knew that slavery was a very important economic part of the South, so he threatened to end slavery if they didn’t surrender because then the Confederate states would crumble, which is mostly what happened after they had to surrender. Slavery wasn’t necessary over after the Emancipation Proclamation, either. He only freed the slaves in the South. Sharecropping happened so after, which is basically slavery but only with drowning in debt so the Black families could become dependent on the white folk they’re on the land and work for.

Goodbye honky.

"White people ended slavery" please tell me this person is not real
