Why were some of the students killed during protests in the 1960s considered “martyrs” while others were labeled “delinquents”? Alison Isenberg, professor of history and codirector of the Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities, examines the photography of urban youth unrest and fatal violence in the 1960s. A reception in the Museum will follow. Part of the 1968/2018: Cities on the Edge series.

Cosponsored by the Humanities Council and the Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities.
