Johnson, the war in Vietnam, the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy, the Mexico Olympics, the election of Richard Nixon and the Apollo 8 mission broadcast on Christmas Eve. Most performances were either sold out or very close to sold out. 1968: The Year That Rocked the World gave new audiences the opportunity to learn about Minnesota's role during this tumultuous year.
