Vietnam - In A WordVietnam - In A WordWMHT

WMHT is in the process of collecting Vietnam experiences for a regional storytelling project leading up to the September 2017 release of Ken Burns' The Vietnam War.

Below, you will have the opportunity to express yourself by sharing *both* your story of the Vietnam War era and one summative word from that story. We aim to collect the stories of many of the different groups that were impacted by the war – from service men and women in the field, to parents and siblings, to spouses, students, protestors, conscientious objectors, and refugees. Stories will be collected and possibly shared on WMHT and PBS’ websites and social media accounts.

Sharing our experiences online is just one part of WMHT’s Vietnam War initiative. As we get closer to the September 17th premiere of the 10-part, 18-hour documentary, we will host community screenings and conversations. We will also bring people to our studios for a filmed conversation.  

We recognize that the Vietnam War is still a complex and emotional topic and we are seeking input from as many people as possible to make this project effective. We hope that you will join WMHT by sharing your perspectives and experiences with the larger community.
