  • A Shortcut Through 1968

    Nineteen sixty-eight was a year that brought the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy. The Vietnam War took a record number of casualties. Many cities burned as people took to the streets against the war and against racism. It was also a year of political trials like the conspiracy trial of the Chicago 8 stemming from the protests at the 1968 Democratic Convention and the trial of the Catonsville 9 for burning draft files in Maryland. It was also a time of intense resistance on college campuses across the country.
