The musical Hair opened on Broadway, and 2001: A Space Odyssey was at the movies. It was also in 1968 that Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated, and 14,000 American military personnel died in Vietnam.

A transformative year across American culture, 1968 is explored in a new exhibition that's now on view at the National Constitution Center. The 1968 Exhibit runs through September 2nd, 2013
