Description

1968 was marked by war and protest, tragedy and revolution—a year around which a whole era of political turmoil, cultural change, and social unrest turned. The Spirit of '68, organized by curators and archivists at the Sheridan Libraries, examines some of the many explosive events of 1968 and the period around this pivotal year. The photographs, posters, pamphlets, magazines, film footage, and archival documents on display focus on the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the "Holy Week Uprisings" that followed in Baltimore; student activism on the Johns Hopkins campus; Vietnam War propaganda and protest; the "Mai 1968" unrest in France; the Black Power and Black Arts movements; and the emergence of what would become known as Gay Liberation.
