1968: A Closer Look at its Impact – Panel Discussion

Guadalupe Castillo, retired educator and community organizer; Greg McNamee, author and adjunct lecturer, Eller School of Management; Ted Warmbrand, folksinger and storyteller; Barbea Williams, artistic director, Barbea Williams Performing Company and adjunct faculty, UA School of Dance.

International and national issues hit home hard in 1968. The war in Vietnam escalated, the draft was in full swing and many cities and college campuses felt the political and racial tensions rising. Join us for a panel discussion with activists, teachers, performers, and writers who remember 1968 topics such as the arts, the conflicts, and everyday life. Learn about the impact that Desert Solitaire had on this country and the broader world. Hear stories about what life was like in Tucson for women and people of color during this pivotal year. Remember some of the popular protest music with local troubadour Ted Warmbrand.
