      EVENT DETAILS
      Exhibit: "UMass Amherst 1968: The Life of a Year"

      Following on the heels of the Summer of Love, 1968 seemed like a world apart. It was a year of social experimentation and optimism, but also a year of rebellion, assassination, political agitation, and violence. It was a year of Nixon and Agnew and hippies and revolutionaries. To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of 1968, the exhibit will draw upon the social change collections in the Libraries' Department of Special Collections and University Archives to explore a watershed year in American history.

      Cost: Free admission
