Iconic Photos From the 50s That Will Make You Long For the Past If You’re White

Elvis Presley, 1956

This photo of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock, doing a classic twist during a Hollywood performance in the July of 1956 will have you wishing you could time travel back to that rockin’ summer! That is if you’re white and could have enjoyed civil rights during the concert! Presley is likely seen here performing his classic hit, “Hound Dog”, that came out that same month after he stole it from the Black female blues singer, Big Mama Thornton. What a time for white people!
