How Transformative Was 1968?

The musical Hair opened on Broadway, and 2001: A Space Odyssey was at the movies. It was also in 1968 that Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated, and 14,000 American military personnel died in Vietnam.

A transformative year across American culture, 1968 is explored in a new exhibition that's now on view at the National Constitution Center. The 1968 Exhibit runs through September 2nd, 2013.

Listen to Susan Lewis' interview with Minnesota Historical Society's Brian Horrigan, lead curator of The 1968 Exhibit.
