A one-day conference examining many aspects of this turbulent decade in Connecticut and their meaning for today. The conference is sponsored by the Association for the Study of Connecticut History, and is co-sponsored by the Connecticut Council for the Social Studies (CCSS), the Connecticut League of History Organizations (CLHO), and the Fairfield University College of Arts and Sciences.
The conference is divided into two parts. The morning consists of two panel sessions, "Academics talking about Activism," and "Activists Talking about Activism." The lunch-time keynote address, "Debating the Sixties," will be given by Professor David Farber of the Univ. of New Mexico.
The afternoon will consist of three concurrent workshops, each organized by one of the co-sponsoring organizations and aimed at their respective memberships. They are: "Teaching the Sixties;" "Collecting and Interpreting Materials and Artifacts from the 1960s;" and "Vietnam and the African-American Experience." Based on the recent documentary, "Another brother," this last is a general discussion-workshop which is open to the public free of charge. The conference is supported by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council.
