The Girl in the Picture: Remembering Vietnam
On June 8, 1972, the South Vietnamese air force dropped napalm on its own troops and civilians after mistaking them for North Vietnamese forces. Nine-year-old Kim Phúc Phan Thi, who was severely injured, was running from the bombed village when an Associated Press photographer captured her and others in one of the most iconic photographs from the Vietnam War, which later won the Pulitzer Prize. Join Kim Phúc Phan Thi, as she discusses her firsthand experience, and classical composer and jazz trumpeter Hannibal Lokumbe for a unique discussion on the Vietnam War and its impact. A special performance by Lokumbe will precede the discussion.
