Episode 45 – 1968: 50 Years On

Episode 45 - 1968: 50 Years On thumbnail

On Episode 45, we are joined by UCL’s Nick Witham (@ndwitham) to examine the turbulent events of 1968 in the United States. 50 years on, what are the legacies of the 365 days of tumult? 

What happened? What impact did it have on various groups in society? And how important were the ‘Sixties’ more broadly? We guide you through the assassinations, cultural upheavals, Vietnam protest, and – of course – the music of 1968. 

Thanks again for listening. We’ll be back next month to examine Native Americans and slavery.
