This event has been cancelled.

Gregory Family Theater

Speaker: Sheri David

Presented by the Lifelong Learning Institute, Manassas

Fifty years have gone by since much of the Vietnam War took place. What questions are we still asking? What has changed about the way we view the lessons learned? What kind of research is now taking place? The class will consider these issues and more. To facilitate discussion, students are encouraged to view the Ken Burns ten-part PBS series on Vietnam, which will begin in September. The class will also consider Mark Bowden’s new and widely read book, Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam.

Sheri David has taught American Policy in Vietnam at Northern Virginia Community College for almost 30 years. She holds a doctorate in American history, is a Fulbright Scholar, an author of one book, several articles and papers, and has participated in a Faculty Seminar in Vietnam and Cambodia. She has recently retired to focus on her grandsons, travel, and research on the last days of Americans in Vietnam.

This event is open to the public. For more information about the Lifelong Learning Institute, Manassas, visit: lli-manassas.org
