Part of the Wright Museum’s 2021 Lecture Series, presented by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, Dorsey’s illustrated presentation will cover some of the ways in which the Vietnam War continues to influence the United States today.
“We can see in our movies and television shows, political candidates, and many of our foreign policy decisions that the Vietnam War has shaped our society for nearly fifty years,” he said.
The Wright Executive Director Mike Culver added, “It will be intriguing and illuminating to hear Dr. Dorsey discuss the ‘complex legacy’ of the Vietnam War that continues to resonate with many Americans after so many decades.”
