Vietnam Era Antiwar Movement: Daniel Ellsberg, W.D. Ehrhart, Carolyn Eisenberg, Nguyet Nguyen, Judith Ehrlich

December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

This panel discussion considers the most vibrant, diverse, and sustained antiwar movement in U.S. history. What impact did it have on the conduct and conclusion of the Vietnam War? Does it offer lessons for our own time?

Join the UMass Amherst Feinberg Series for a conversation with Daniel Ellsberg, the whistleblower who exposed decades of government lies about the war by releasing the Pentagon Papers; antiwar activists and historians Carolyn Eisenberg and Nguyet Nguyen; and Vietnam veteran, writer, teacher and activist W. D. Ehrhart. The award-winning filmmaker Judith Ehrlich (The Boys Who Said NO!) will moderate.
