about the project

The dc1968 project, curated and crowdsourced by Marya Annette McQuirter, is a digital project centeredon Washington, DC in 1968. Ambitious in scope, the project moves beyond the hyper focus on the uprising, after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and amplifies the art & activism that made 1968 such an extraordinary year in DC.

Each morning, starting 1 January 2018, you can get a daily fix of original stories and photographs that will surprise, delight, anger, inform and move you to share, learn & act.

You can also be a part of this archival project by sharing your memories. Do you have photographs, yearbooks, t-shirts,   letters, fliers, posters from 1968?  You can share and upload here.
