The Long Reckoning: The Toxic Legacy of the Vietnam War
Perkins Coie LLP - Seattle
1201 3rd Ave #4900, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
Fifty years after the Paris Peace Treaty ended U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, the people of Vietnam still grapple with the deadly legacy of years of war – unexploded ordinances, dioxin contamination, and rural poverty and dislocation. The U.S. government was for decades unwilling to acknowledge that its tactics, including defoliating 44 provinces in Vietnam and massive bombing campaigns, left a toxic footprint that remains today.
Join the World Affairs Council as we explore the lasting consequences of the Vietnam War in both Vietnam and the United States with George Black, author of The Long Reckoning: A Story of War, Peace, and Redemption in Vietnam. Black will be joined by former U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Michael Michalak. Journalist, storyteller, and filmmaker Thanh Tan will moderate the conversation.
Make sure you arrive at 5:30 pm to enjoy a glass of wine and a chance to mingle with fellow World Affairs Council enthusiasts!
