Reflections on 1968 is a chance for you to answer the question: what’s your 1968 story? We’re collecting stories for use on this web site, in film, and in a major traveling exhibition.
Were you there? How old were you? Where did you live?

It was a year when war raged, angry protests erupted everywhere, assassinations sent shock waves around the world, and images of the whole Earth were beamed back from space for the first time.

Are you the child or grandchild of a "child of the sixties?" What stories did they tell you? How does their experience reflect on you?

Against all the turbulence, life went on. Babies were born, Little League games were played, and ordinary people went to work each morning. People say that the events of 1968 “rocked the world.” What happened in your world that year?
