The war in Vietnam and Southeast Asia left an indelible mark on millions of people. In order to collect and preserve the stories of those affected by the war and its aftermath, the Minnesota Humanities Center chose six host communities—including Minnesota State University Moorhead—to convene gatherings to honor the stories and experiences around the Vietnam War.
Watch, read, and listen to others' stories, and add yours to the Minnesota Remembers Vietnam Story Wall.
Minnesota Remembers Vietnam is an initiative led by Twin Cities PBS (TPT) and aimed at inspiring Minnesotans to remember, share stories, recognize bravery, express their reasons for dissent, and foster understanding around the lasting impact of war. TPT is partnering with the Minnesota Humanities Center to bring public conversations around these topics to communities across the state, thanks to support from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund that was created with a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
