Fifty years ago, countries and cities around the globe erupted with protests and revolutionary movements demanding change and seeking to create a better future. Featuring four renowned historians, “Global 1968” spotlights marginalized groups and lesser-known events and places in the global upheavals of 1968—from Mexico to China, Oakland to West Africa—while considering what lessons can be drawn for politics and protest today.

Included in the evening's event will be a pop-up exhibit of images from a 1968 photography project launched by artist Ruth-Marion Baruch to document the people and the work of California's Black Panther Party. The now-iconic photographs she and her husband Pirkle Jones took of the Panthers were both celebrated and criticized for their sympathetic portrayal of a maligned community. Black Panthers, 1968 is one of many projects revealing Baruch's and Jones's commitment to art and social change that are preserved in their archive at UC Santa Cruz’s Special Collections & Archives.

Co-sponsored by: The Center for World History and the History Department. Part of The Humanities Institute’s Freedom and Race Series, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
