1968: Echoes of a Tumultuous Year




Fifty years later, the political and social upheaval of 1968 seems all too relevant to today's world. Our all-star panel of Lynn Sherr, Max Frankel, Marvin Kalb, Lydia Polgreen and Jeff Greenfield will discuss their coverage of the events of '68; how the country has changed since then in politics, race relations and women's rights; and whether those events might have played out differently in today's media environment.
