Reflections on 1968: Joanna Misnik and Micah Uetricht in Conversation

Jacobin’s Spring 2018 issue is on the complicated legacy of the upheavals of 1968, fifty years later. To discuss that legacy, Joanna Misnik, longtime socialist activist and Chicago Democratic Socialists of America member, spoke with Jacobin managing editor Micah Uetricht.

Joanna was present for some of the major battles of 1968 and has been a socialist militant ever since. She and Micah discussed how she joined the New Left, what it did right and what it did wrong, and what we should take from those struggles today.
