2012: Beyond The Tie-Dye: Counterculture In Champaign-Urbana, 1965-1975

During the height of protests against the Vietnam War on the University of Illinois campus, students confronted the National Guard, conducted sit-ins to protest recruiting on campus by defense contractors and chemical companies, and met in “hippie” houses in the area where the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts is today. Beyond the Tie-Dye: Counterculture in Champaign-Urbana, 1965-1975 is a radio documentary and series by Urbana University Laboratory High School students about that era.
