USA – Czechoslovakia – Mexico City – Chico, CA; these four regions are the lenses through which we view the challenging and tumultuous year of 1968. Unrest in these different cities and cultures impacted the lives of organized groups, governments, and everyday citizens. Though each region’s struggles and organized efforts were different, the fervent desire for change was felt all over the world. CSU, Chico’s Dr. Robert Cottrell, Dr. Kate Transchel, Dr. Stephen Lewis, and Dr. Rodney Thomson, Jr. offer historical context and perspective that show how remarkable 1968 was as a landmark year for civil rights and civil struggles.Recorded: September 25, 2018
