digital project on washington, dc in 1968

I am curating a digital project on Washington, DC in 1968 to commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary in 2018.  The purpose of the project is to move beyond the hyperfocus on "the riots" and to amplify the full range of individuals, organizations, events and ideas that made 1968 such a momentous year in DC.  It is an ambitious project!  The website will feature content (photos, text, audio, video) for each day in 2018.  

The idea is similar to NEH's 1968 project.  However, dc1968 will focus only on DC and will be more user friendly and responsive.

Are you an instructor seeking a project for your students to work on?  Want to learn more about the project?

You can reach me via email, dc1968project@gmail.com or DM me @maryamcquirter.
