On the 50th anniversary of 1968, join CPE for The Spirit of '68: Lessons from the Worldwide Revolution, a four-part study of the politics of this momentous year and its lessons for today's struggles.

1968 was a watershed year. Itself a product of decades of struggle, 1968 was a year during which the world caught on fire: In Africa, Asia, and Latin America people's liberation movements put colonial and imperial regimes on the defensive. In cities such as Memphis to Paris, millions of workers went out on strike. From Mexico to Eastern Europe to San Francisco, students called for radical transformation of education. Across the world women and queer people challenged patriarchy both outside and inside of the left. Mass civil rights movements from the US, to the North of Ireland, to South Africa became increasingly broad and militant. City after city broke into upheaval and insurrection. The banners of Black Power, Third World solidarity, and socialism were held high, their ideas informing vision and strategy for a new world. ‘68 was also a year extreme violence, as those who ruled used assassination, military occupation, bombardment, and unrelenting political repression to maintain their grip on power.
