1968: The exhibit, and the year in politics and culture
A new Minnesota Historical Society exhibit opens October 14th featuring the extraordinary events of 1968: the peak of the Vietnam War, the assassinations of RFK and MLK, the election of President Richard Nixon, love-ins and feminist demonstrations, polarizing music, television and movies. If you were living then, what did you experience in 1968? If you were born afterward, what do you make of it?
