Event description

Description

Join KCPT for a special screening of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's new documentary The Vietnam War followed by a discussion with local Vietnam veteran John Musgrave. Musgrave's experience as a Marine in Vietnam and changing feelings about the war are an integral part of the 18-hour series. Talking about Musgrave's contributions to the film in a Vanity Fair article, Burns said, “I have this recurring thought that, if some evil genie took away all our interviews but one, the one we would keep would be John Musgrave, and we’d make a different film and call it The Education of John Musgrave.”

After screening select clips featuring his story, Musgrave will take part in a discussion about his service, reactions to the war in Lawrence and the legacy of the Vietnam War. The event is free and open to the public with RSVP.
