Everything wasn’t groovy as the summer of ’68 approached. NR’s May 21st issue reported on how Cuba and China were manipulating Black Power leaders in America’s deadly streets, on campus riots at Columbia University, and on Gov. Rockefeller tossing his top hat into the GOP primaries (too late? – NR editor’s prognosticate). Three great pieces, and they’re reproduced for your enjoyment in the next edition of NROriginals, our free weekly newsletter that serves up blasts from NR’s past. You can subscribe here, where you’ll also be able to get your free weekly subscription to The Goldberg File, and your free daily subs to NRO Digest and Jim Geraghty’s must-read, Morning Jolt.
