If you haven’t seen it already, Life magazine issued a special commemorative issue called 1968: The Year That Changed the World. You can buy it online from Amazon or at your local bookstore.
Revisit 1968, one of the most pivotal years in modern history, a year that saw profound changes in everything from politics to race relations, music, art and culture.
We were the Class of 1968, and we lived through tumultuous times: the war in Vietnam (“Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?!”); Johnson’s speech to not seek re-election (“I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President”); the assassination of Martin Luther King and the ensuing riots and fires across the country; the assassination of Robert Kennedy after he won the California presidential primary; the riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago; and much, much more.
Popular culture during that time also turned out to be memorable—how about the Beatles and their trip to India to study Transcendental Meditation, followed by “Hey, Jude” and the “White Album”; Bob Dylan; Janis Joplin; the Rolling Stones; the Doors; the movie Planet of the Apes; the television show, Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In… Beautiful Downtown Burbank!
… we lived through it all, and graduated in June 1968 with a ceremony at the Starlight Bowl.
Now it is fifty years later, and it’s time to PARTY!
