50th Reunion, class of 1967

The Pembroke College class of 1967 graduated under Dean Rosemary Pierrel and was the first to graduate under Brown University President Ray Heffner. They celebrated popular traditions such as Father-Daughter Weekend and Spring Weekend. During their senior year, the Civil Rights Movement was at a peek and the Vietnam War raged. In April of 1967, Martin Luther King Jr. delivers his "Beyond Vietnam" speech, calling for defeat of "the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism.” A cabin fire during a launch rehearsal of Apollo 1 killed three NASA crewmembers, and the twenty-fifth amendment to the United States constitution was added in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
