50th Anniversary of 1968


The dc1968 project is a curated and crowdsourced digital project commemorating the 50th anniversary of DC in 1968. Ambitious in scope, the project moves beyond the hyper focus on the uprising after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and amplifies the activism, art, architecture and everyday life in that fateful year. It situates DC, alongside Kingston, Mbabane, Mexico City, Paris and Prague, as a capital city central to politically and culturally shaping what has become known as the global 1968. Each day, through Dec. 31, stories and photographs are posted on dc1968project.com and @dc1968project via Instagram & Twitter. Each daily post includes a photograph, an original story and a geolocation. Some also include audio and video.
