Evanston 1968: Seasons of Change

August 25, 2018 – May 13, 2019

Revisit the tumultuous year of 1968 in our new exhibit, Evanston 1968: Seasons of Change. Fifty years ago emerging dissatisfaction with the existing order spontaneously coalesced into a movement of protest and social activism. Before the development of social media, disparate voices of protest around the world emerged to challenge the established order. Evanston was a city in the process of evolving and its traditions, population, and politics underwent a major shift. Along with a building boom downtown and in the school system, Evanston’s cultural landscape was forever altered. Join EHC in examining how the year 1968 brought significant changes to Evanston.
