On this week’s episode of Campus Voices, we visited the library to talk with curators Rebecca Johnson Melvin and John Caldwell about the library’s most current exhibit, 1968: Heterodoxical Times in Delaware. The exhibit is comprised of four different showcases, each focusing on the life of UD students during the year 1968.
The exhibit focuses on this year because of all the now-historic events that took place, including the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, and the clash between police and protesters at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.
The exhibition is at the University of Delaware’s Morris Library, and will be on display until August 17th, 2018.
1968: Heterodoxical Times in Delaware, recorded on May 11th, 2018. First aired May 17th, 2018.
