1968 was a flashpoint in the fight for Civil Rights in both Champaign County and throughout the United States. With the assassination of many leaders of the movement taking place in the 1960s, including Martin Luther King Jr. in April of 1968, the year was absolutely crucial in the fight for equality at home and around the nation. Join us for an engaging panel discussion on local civil rights-related issues featuring Candy Foster, Izona Burgess, and Stan West, prominent community members present at the time. Come out to the museum early and check out our special exhibit, 1968: A Time for Every Purpose, to learn more about civil rights from that change-making year.
