Twin Cities Public Television, Washington County Library and Washington County Veterans Services invite you to a community conversation that explores the Vietnam War and its legacy from several points of view on Wednesday, April 25 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Bayport American Legion.
Speakers with very different experiences will share their stories about the Vietnam War, representatives from the county’s Veterans Services office will also be on hand to answer questions, and related videos and books will be highlighted. Speakers will include Anh-Hoa Thi Nguyen, Mary Beth Crowley, Jerry Miron and others, to reflect the many voices and many stories that can help all of us gain fresh perspective on this time in our nation’s history.
This conversation is part of TPT’s ongoing Minnesota Remembers Vietnam initiative, which launched in 2017 in conjunction with the broadcast of “The Vietnam War,” a documentary series by filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.
The cornerstone of the initiative is the Minnesota Remembers Vietnam Story Wall, made possible by people who have shared their stories about the Vietnam War. Learn more about the initiative or share your story at www.mnvietnam.org.
