Join us this Sunday for a comparison piece, "Campaign '68" from American Public Media.

Many see similarities between the presidential election campaign of 2016 and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year.

Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

Tune in the Sunday, October 23 at 7 p.m. for "Campaign '68." If you missed the live broadcast, you can also listen online, anytime.
