The 8th installment of The Sixties show airs on CNN at 9:00 PM on Thursday, July 31st.
This week, the focus is on the year 1968. It was not a very good year. There was so much unrest and turmoil in the United States which culminated in the assassinations of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Presidential Candidate, Robert Francis Kennedy.
If one thinks the country is in turmoil now, I think you will be surprised at the events that evolved during this incredibly sad year. It was pretty awful and there was a sense of despondency hanging in the air. The country was definitely on the brink.
Please watch – you will be surprised. And if you miss the 9:00 PM telecast, it will be replayed numerous times over the weekend.
