About the Event

This moderated discussion will feature family members of some of the 1968 Presidential candidates, discussing their experiences of the late 1960s—featuring what it was like to be a young person and student at the time, their experiences being at the Democratic National Convention that year, and the background of the Vietnam War. The student protest movement was active both on campus and around the country, offering educational lessons still applicable to today. 

This event is part of the 1968/69-2018/19: Historic Upheavals, Enduring Aftershocks Series
