The Question: What ‘60s counterculture was known to wear black turtlenecks and berets?
The Beatnik culture of the early 1960s emerged from the Beat Generation literary movement of the previous decade. Beatniks embodied the anti-materialism, anti-mainstream ideals espoused by the Beat writers. They expressed it with their simple black clothing, a counter to the mainstream’s bright colors and eye-popping patterns.
The Answer: The correct answer is Beatnik.
