Wednesday, April 26, 4 - 9 p.m.; Thursday, April 27, 4 - 9 p.m.; and Saturday, April 29, 8:30 a.m. - 5:45 p.m.

Explore the transformational decade of the 1970s at the Museum's 14th history symposium through 15 hours of programming.  Hear renowned national speakers, authors and state and local experts. Each will offer a unique perspective during this comprehensive examination of the 1970s.

The symposium will study the people of the 1970s, the culture, events, politics and personalities that shaped the decade and our sense of individuality. Many see the decade as one of disillusion, anger with Watergate, the Cold War and the Vietnam War and our place in the world. While even under political disillusion we were also under siege by economic decline and declining standards of living.  There were violent homegrown revolutionary movements. The movement for civil rights grew promoting changes for women, gays, immigrants, and the disabled.  These great transformations in our society and their impact on our world today will be explored through presenter stories.
