Join Spartan Alumni for a colloquium on 1968 from the perspective of those who saw it from the Hill --Tet Offensive/Vietnam, Kennedy and King assassinations, riots, the Prague Spring—followed by their first semester in college and the end of Johnson Administration, Chicago Democratic Convention, the election of Richard Nixon, and the aftermath.
1968 was a tipping point in domestic and international politics, economics, civic culture, race relations in the U.S., and served as the beginning of a major transition that culminated with the end of the Cold War. It was also a year that shaped the class of 1968 in ways we only understand with perspective.
This event is open to all classes; it might be of interest to students, faculty, other alumni, those interested in 20th century history, and those interested in how history can shape the trajectory of our lives.
