    Civic Hall in New York, NY

    The Vietnam War: Then and Now

    Civic Hall hosts a panel discussion of The Vietnam War: Then and Now on October 16, 6-8:30pm. This event will focus on the role of public-spirited media and civic movements as they have tried to hold America's leaders accountable to humane values.

    Register here.

    The release of the new PBS documentary, The Vietnam War, by Ken Burns (@KenBurns) and Lynn Novick (@LynnNovick), is opening new reflections on a momentous period in history. For the older generations that lived through the war, the series is a reminder of battles, moral and physical, that made them question everything they knew about America. For younger people who were born later, the series is an opportunity to learn anew.

    To prepare for these conversations, we ask that you take the time to watch The Vietnam War on PBS beforehand.
