Hemisfair '68: A Stamp in Time

As part of URBAN-15's Hidden Histories series and the 50th anniversary of Hemisfair '68, this Hidden Histories event will recall the 1968 World's Fair from the perspective of its youth workers. Curator Becky Barrera, Advisory board member for the Institute of Texan Cultures and former Hemisfair ’68 VIP Guide, will moderate a roundtable discussion with several former employees of the fair who were in high school or college at the time. She will also discuss the lasting impact of Hemisfair in the course of these youth's lives, as well as on San Antonio’s history and sense of cultural identity.
