A horse-drawn caisson carries a casket and leads family members through Arlington National Cemetery.

When 12- and 13-year-old University Laboratory High School students interviewed veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, the students’ age and inexperience may have enabled them to get better stories from the people who served.

Listen to the Audio

(Duration: 59:00)

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.
