Hear Tom Hayden and Duane Hall discuss their extraordinary experiences at the 1968 DNC from their individual points of view—Hayden as an organizer for the National Mobilization to End the War and Hall as a photographer who used a “shoot and run” style as he was clubbed by the Chicago police. Hayden will also speak about the state of politics today, including how to build a social movement that is politically effective. See Duane Hall's photography in display now in Out in the Streets.

The series will not only celebrate the individual artist, but will use that artist to expose the Charlotte community to the aesthetic excellence of fine art and provide learning opportunities about the artistic process and ideas in creating film, photography, and media.
