1968 is an iconic bench mark in history and a transformative time in American culture.
Amidst the sweeping currents of an increasingly confrontational anti-war sentiment, racial tensions between white and black Americans, and a growing class divide, a Harvard-Yale football game that took place on November 23, 1968 became one of the most storied events in sports history. George Howe Colt, author of The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968, masterfully charts the season-ending clash between Harvard and Yale and the extraordinary people who lived through it and were forever changed by the game. The portrait that emerges from his research and one-on-one interviews is both a magnificent and deeply intimate snapshot of a specific moment in American history and also a remarkable mirror to our present time.
