With today’s social and political climate, people are craving hope, joy, and unity now more than ever. In the past, the public has looked to entertainers during hard times to be distracted, or as means of a release of the day’s tensions, and often even as someone to aspire to.

With so much tension and hate in the air (especially where politics are involved) it’s nice to look back on a simpler time in America. Beautiful starlets, comedic geniuses, and influential musicians… collected here are rare images of history’s pop culture icons who have contributed to American culture and to some of the most meaningful moments in American history in a way you have never seen them before.

Maureen McCormick will forever be known as Marcia Brady of the Brady Bunch. She was a teen icon from the late 60s into the early 70s. After the show went off the air in 1974, she made guest appearances and eventually made her way onto the reality TV circuit popular today.

Patrick Swayze was in a league of his own with boyish good looks and incredible talents on and off the screen. With classics like Road House, Dirty Dancing, and The Outsiders under his belt, he secured his place as a pop culture icon in no time.
