1968 + 50 – Looking back at the historic, tumultuous year of 1968
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the year 1968, a year of astounding, historic changes from which ripples still affect our world. The year was marked by the peak of a controversial war in Vietnam, revolutions and unrest in the U.S. and around the world, the loss of two of America's leaders by violence, as well as significant events in sports, entertainment, technology, and a trip around the moon. 1968 + 50 is a half-century retrospective, with at least one entry for each of the 366 days of 1968.
