The Ken Burns effect on the Vietnam War: an interview with Karín Aguilar-San Juan (24:08)
Date: October 23, 2017
By: Karín Aguilar-San Juan
An interview recorded in early August 2017 with Karín Aguilar-San Juan. The interview covers the book she coedited with Frank Joyce called "The People Make the Peace: Lessons from the Vietnam Antiwar Movement" (Just World Books 2015) on U.S. antiwar activists and combat veterans against the Vietnam War and their efforts at citizen diplomacy through travel to Vietnam. The interview touches upon the new Ken Burns documentary on the Vietnam War and what Aguilar-San Juan calls America's "Forrest Gump-ified" memory of the Vietnam War.
