Big Read KC

During the Vietnam conflict, battles on the homefront went beyond anti-war protests. Activists gathered in support of many cultural movements: civil rights, women’s rights, gay rights, rights for students and workers, and protections for the environment. UMKC history professors Rebecca Davis and Sandra Enriquez examine the protests of the ’60s and compare them with those of today.
