Stories of ’68

We’re inviting those who lived through this remarkable year to share their stories in The 1968 Exhibit and give our visitors—many of them young people—a personal perspective on those 12 incredible months.

Stories of ’68 sessions will take place inside The 1968 Exhibit during regular museum hours. Each session will last approximately 30 minutes. A National Constitution Center staff member will lead you through a guided conversation, asking you to share your story and answer questions about your experiences.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out this questionnaire.
