Bryan Keith Thomas

On the December 31st edition of  Your Call, we’ll revisit our  conversation with artists about the 21st annual Oakland Museum’s Day of the Dead exhibition, Rituals + Remembrance.

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the year 1968 and why it was such a watershed moment.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4th, 1968.  In the same year: The Tet Offensive killed tens of thousands in Vietnam.  Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated.  Women threw their bras into a public trash can to protest the Miss America Pageant.  Apollo 8 orbited the moon.  A current exhibit at the Oakland Museum highlights the events of 1968.
