Arthur Miller on the Surreal, Ideological Violence Underlying the 1968 Democratic Convention

Feature photo by David Douglas Duncan. Used with permission of the Harry Ransom Center. At the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, police riots erupted across the city in response to anti-war demonstrators. In this piece, Arthur Miller reflects on the aftermath of the riots and describes a candlelight walk and vigil that he took with other Democratic delegates on the night of August 28th, by Grant Park to the Conrad Hilton Hotel. In many ways, his keen observations on the nature of violence, the failures of the political party machine, and the act of protest speak directly to the present day.
