Modern Times returns for its 12th season spanning the end of the Post-War Era and the beginning of the sweeping changes of the 1960s. We round the corner into our exploration of the second half of the 20th century with two unique perspectives on the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963. From there, we move through the early history of the tech sector's impact on this state with presentations on the invention of the integrated circuit and the arrival and development of the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Finally, we turn our gaze locally to the controversy surrounding the Westgate apartments and the Capitol view corridors.
