This spring RBML’s Dr. Thai Jones, Curator for American history, has scheduled a number of events designed for reflection and re-evaluation of the legacy of 1968.

Events include a discussion of underground media, a panel to launch a new book on Columbia ’68, a weekend conference to consider new scholarship on the sixties, and a semester-long exhibition in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
