Friday, August 2, 2019Saturday, August 3, 2019

Remember the 1950s? It was a decade that is often looked at with a sense of nostalgia and romanticism. But the 50s was also a time of sweeping change that can now be revisited with a more objective eye.

Next summer in Kearney, Humanities Nebraska will present a new style of Chautauqua that will explore the social, economic, political, and international changes of this decade. There will be a variety of activities and events for Nebraskans of all ages to enjoy, led by various experts and scholars. Join us as we unearth a plethora of stories from the 1950s that might just change the way you look at the 1950s forever.

Humanities Nebraska programming is made possible by:

and generous individuals, foundations, and businesses across Nebraska.
