Chicago ’68 Trolley Tour
Sunday, August 26
Explore why 1968 is still recalled as a pivotal time in this country and this city with guides who witnessed history firsthand: Michael Klonsky, former national secretary of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Susan Klonsky, an activist in SDS and the women’s liberation movement. The 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago was the focus of major protests against the Vietnam War, and confrontations between demonstrators and police were televised, giving rise to the chant, “The whole world is watching.” Starting from Lincoln Park, head to the West Side and then the Michigan Avenue/Grant Park area as you revisit the scenes of that turbulent summer.
