The year 1968 retains its mythic hold on the political and cultural imagination. It was marked by the Tet Offensive, barricades in Paris, the Prague Spring, and the American Indian Movement, as well as the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, the Tlatelolco massacre, and the election of Richard Nixon. In this roundtable, historians assess the impact of this scarring and transformative year from a local, national, and global perspective.
