  The Voting Rights Act Of 1965
By 1965 concerted efforts to break the grip of state disfranchisement had been under way for some time, but had achieved only modest success overall and in some areas had proved almost entirely ineffectual.
Finally, the unprovoked attack on March 7, 1965, by state troopers on peaceful marchers crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, en route to the state capitol in Montgomery, persuaded the President and Congress to overcome Southern legislators' resistance to effective voting rights legislation.
Section 2 of the Act, which closely followed the language of the 15th amendment, applied a nationwide prohibition against the denial or abridgment of the right to vote on the literacy tests on a nationwide basis.

 Center for Immigration Studies
Despite the noble words, the architects of the 1965 law did not see it as a means of significantly changing the immigration flow — it was considered more a symbolic act, an extension of civil rights sentiments beyond our borders.
Although the 1965 bill was intended only to end discrimination, some people feared a major increase in immigration and a change in the source countries of immigrants.
Despite the protestations of the 1965 act's sponsors, the sources of immigration have changed radically.

The floor, which had been dirt since the stadium first opened in 1965 was concreted and the Astroturf was replaced with a new Monsanto "Magic Carpet' system.
In its inaugural 1965 season, the Astrodome was the scene of a unique groundskeeping argument.

  Government accepts no blame for wrongful convictions in 1965 mob slaying - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe
A Justice Department lawyer argued today that the FBI had no duty to share internal documents that may have helped four men prove they were innocent of a 1965 gangland slaying and insisted the government can't be blamed for the state's wrongful conviction of Joseph Salvati, Peter J. Limone, Henry Tameleo and Louis Greco.
US District Judge Nancy Gertner noted that the state had been unable to solve the 1965 slaying of Edward "Teddy'' Deegan in a Chelsea alley until FBI agents recruited Joseph "The Animal" Barboza as a witness and turned him over to state officials to testify against the four men.
She also noted that FBI agents had interviewed Barboza 34 times before he testified before the state grand jury and knew he had vowed not to implicate one of his friends, who was a suspect in the slaying and was also an FBI informant.

By 1965, electricity was an everyday part of American life.
At 5:27 p.m., November 9, 1965, the entire Northeast area of the United States and large parts of Canada went dark.
Investigators referred to the 1965 flout as a "cascade effect"-much like a row of dominoes falling one after another.

 The 1965 Immigration Act: Anatomy of a Disaster   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Born of liberal ideology, the 1965 bill abolished the national origins quota system that had regulated the ethnic composition of immigration in fair proportion to each group's existing presence in the population.
In 1965, Senator Hugh Scott, R-Pennsylvania, opined, "I doubt if this bill will really be the cause of crowding the present Americans out of the 50 states." Yet half-a-million native Californians fled the state in the last decade, while its total population increased by three million, mostly immigrants.
Ted Kennedy also claimed the 1965 amendments "will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." Teddy cannot have it both ways: either the immigrant will remain unemployed and become a public charge, or he will take a job that otherwise could have gone to a native American.

 The CIA in Indonesia, 1965-1967
Nor is it suggested that in 1965 the only provocations and violence came from the right-wing Indonesian military, their contacts in the United States, or (also important, but barely touched on here) their mutual contacts in British, German and Japanese intelligence.
Their problematic claim is that in the so-called Gestapu (Gerakan September Tigahpuluh) coup attempt of September 30, 1965 (when six senior army generals were murdered), the left attacked the right, leading to a restoration of power, and punitive purge of the left, by the center.
The army's anxiety was increased by rumors, throughout 1965, that mainland China was smuggling arms to the PKI for an imminent revolt.

 Voting Rights Act 1965 - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Voting Rights Act 1965   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The act prohibited literacy tests and poll taxes, which had been used to prevent fls from voting, and provided for the appointment of federal voting examiners with the authority to register voters in areas not meeting certain existing voter participation requirements.
The legislation was a direct response to the protests of voting-rights activists, and specifically to the events surrounding the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, led by Martin Luther King, Jr, in March 1965 to dramatize the voting issue.

Yet the international blockbuster that resulted when all these elements finally came together in the spring of 1965 was altogether greater than the sum of its parts.
Impressed with what he saw and confident she could bring added depth to the role made famous on Broadway by the legendary Mary Martin, Wise quickly signed Andrews to play the impetuous postulant upon whose shoulders the success of THE SOUND OF MUSIC would rest.
And with a voice like Andrews', its easier to understand how a devoted nun-in-training could permit a simple abbey rule against singing to force her outside the convent walls and into the real world where all her adventures begin.

 Indo-Pakistan War of 1965
The war began in August 5, 1965 and was ended Sept 22, 1965.
The war was initiated by Pakistan who since the defeat of India by China in 1962 had come to believe that Indian military would be unable or unwilling to defend against a quick military campaign in Kashmir, and because the Pakistani government was becoming increasingly alarmed by Indian efforts to integrate Kashmir within India.
After Pakistan was successful in the Rann of Kutch earlier in 1965, Ayub Khan (by nature a cautious person) was pressured by the hawks in his cabinet (led by Z.A. Bhutto) and the army to infiltrate the ceasefire line in Kashmir.

 The Indonesian Killings 1965-1966: Studies from Java and Bali
The most obvious is the lack of information, not only about the events that sparked the slaughter (an alleged coup attempt by the PKI in which seven generals were killed) and the details of the killings themselves, but also about their overall scale.
This extends to uncertainty about the total number of deaths, with figures ranging from seventy five thousand (a government report released at the end of 1965 when the killings were still underway) to two million (an estimate by emigre refugees).
Interpretation of the events is also extremely complex — the question is not just why the killing happened, but why such ferocity was involved and why people gave up their lives without struggling.
