Boom--A Look At 1968

1968 was the beginning of the 60s that we know today. We remember it as the year
Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were assassinated,The Riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, sprinters John Carlos and Tommy Smith giving the "Black Power Salute" at the Olympics in Mexico City, the election of Richard Nixon, and finally, the Moon Orbit of Apollo 8.
Tom Brokaw somehow interviews and writes about the time, injecting his own experiences as well as interviewing many of the "players" on both sides of the fence.
