Articles on the 50th anniversary of HemisFair '68

Recommended Posts

Interesting information.  Thank you for sharing and welcome to this site.  

I am old enough to remember that Hemisfair opened just two days after Dr. King was murdered in Memphis.  The nation was descending into chaos and grief.  I believe the opening ceremonies were somewhat subdued and Lady Bird Johnson attended while President Johnson dealt with so many difficulties and attended Dr. King's funeral.  Hemisfair was probably the most positive national event of 1968.  The rest of that year was just awful.
