      America in 1968

      Following the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 8's lunar orbit, one reflects on
      America in 1968 – the year Smithsonian magazine says "America Shattered," the cusp year of "The '60s": the Cultural Revolution whose repercussions redefined America reverberating down today. 1968 was the hinge year, the year everything changed. From the Tet Offensive to President Johnson's resignation; from the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy; from Miami and the Siege of Chicago; from the women's march on Atlantic City to Apollo 8's Christmas Eve lunar orbit when humans first saw the far side of the moon and 'Earth-rise', 1968 changed everything. This presentation traces those events, their antecedents, and their consequences.
