Seeds of Change
In 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated, the Civil Rights Act was sent to Congress, and the first African-Americans matriculated at Duke. Since then, America has grown more into a global melting pot. How has Duke further diversified its community and what impacts have allowed it to become a leading research university? The Vietnam War developed into a major social issue for the United States causing a dichotomy of views and support. Arguably, its impact forever changed a generation’s view of war. Come join the classes of 1967 for insight on how these events impacted the University. For some, it awakened a new spirit, invoked others to action, or enlightened others to the fact that opposing ideologies do exist. What actions were taken, how did the events shape their life?
