Nineteen sixty-eight was a year to remember months before it ever reached a climactic ending. Fifty years later we are still remembering the succession of events that defined an era and shaped the nation. The Portrait Gallery’s one room exhibition, “One Year, 1968: An American Odyssey” explores this tumultuous year through the lives of some thirty disparate newsmakers. The images herein are samples from the show and focus on such major themes as the war in Vietnam, civil rights and racial unrest, pop culture, sports, politics, and the Apollo 8 lunar mission. The exhibit is on view now through May 19, 2019.
