    1968 and the Making of Modern America

    One of the most momentous years in U.S.A. history began half-century ago today

    1968 began fifty years ago today.

    Before it ended, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy would be assassinated; U.S.A. troops would suffer their deadliest year yet in Vietnam –– and massacred scores of civilians at My Lai; Richard Nixon would be elected president; the Khmer Rouge would form in Cambodia; humans would orbit the moon; Olympic medal winners in Mexico City would raise their fists in a black power salute; President Johnson would sign the Civil Rights Act of 1968; Yale University would announce that it intended to admit women; 2001: A Space Odyssey would premier; and Led Zeppelin would give their first live performance.
