Dave Zeiger and Jerry Lembcke, the Real Lessons of The Vietnam War, Why the Anti-War Movement Was Right, and What People Need to Do Today
Dave Zeiger and Jerry Lembcke will join Michael Slate. In the world today when the fascist Trump regime is threatening war all over the world, it's important to understand the real lessons of the Vietnam War, why the anti-war movement was right, and what people need to do today.
David Zeiger is a director and producer, best known for the documentary "Sir! No Sir!," a sweeping, and unmatched, story of anti-war veterans and GIs during the Vietnam War. He also created the PBS documentary series "Senior Year," "Displaced in the New South" and "The Band." He is the founder of Displaced Films.
Jerry Lembcke is Associate Professor Emeritus at College of the Holy Cross. He is the author of The Spitting Image: Myth, Memory, and the Legacy of Vietnam, the only thoroughly researched study (and debunking) of stories of Vietnam Vets and GIs being spat on or shunned by anti-war activists. Other books include Hanoi Jane: War, Sex, and Fantasies of Betrayal, PTSD, and many more.
