This chapter analyzes social movements in 1960s U.S. and Japan as part of related currents in Cold War discourse, examining ideas and rhetoric that linked antinuclear, anti-Vietnam War, the civil rights, national liberation, and black activist groups. Their struggle to ensure human rights became common ground in Hiroshima as historian Howard Zinn and SNCC’s Ralph Featherstone met with hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors) and an antiwar group lead by writer Oda Makoto.
