A Look Back at 1968

While the Delaware Public Archives presented a program earlier in the year about the life and death of Martin Luther King, Jr., this expanded program will take a closer look at other major events in the pivotal year of 1968.
The first part of this program, presented by historian Dan Pritichett, will focus on the life and death of Robert Kennedy. In the second half of the program, former Delaware
Secretary of State Ed Freel will hold a discussion with well-known writer Mark Bowden (author of Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam, The Best Game Ever: Giants vs. Colts, 1958, and the Birth of the Modern NFL, and the #1 New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down) will look at the impact of the Tet Offensive on the Vietnam War.
Please note the afternoon start time for this program.
