Chicago History Museum Calls for Interviewees

The Chicago History Museum will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Democratic National Convention (DNC) by recording interviews with individuals who witnessed and participated in the DNC and the demonstrations organized for the event. We are seeking bystanders, policemen, demonstrators, delegates, photographers, students and individuals to share their memories and experiences about this explosive event in American political history.
Beginning Tuesday, August 26, and ending Friday, August 29, the museum invites individuals for interviews between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. These dates mark the fortieth anniversary of the historic convention.
