1968 was pivotal year in both Vietnam and the United States. Just prior to the Tet offensive and the turning of the War in Southeast Asia, anti-war protests broke out on college campuses in the States and the ensuing youth movement began to change American culture. On April 14, the topic is “House of Pegasus” – Folk Music and the War. The Vietnam War was a dominant musical theme in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Anti-war songs were an integral part of virtually every anti-war protest march and rally. Admission is $5 at the door, and free for all WWII Veterans, Friends of the Tower, MAC members and students. For information, contact Alex Breve at (609) 884-5404 ext. 116 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
