Join Samuel W Black, the History Center’s lead curator on The Vietnam War: 1945-1975 exhibition, for an in-depth conversation on the role of Black media during the Vietnam War era.
Black, who also serves as director of the History Center’s African American Program, will take attendees on a deep dive into how Black media communicated news about the Vietnam War to African Americans, the complex power and racial dynamics between the African American community and traditional American news outlets, and speak with local Pittsburgh media figures about their experience working in the industry in the 1970s.
Admission to this program is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is encouraged. Program admission includes access to The Vietnam War: 1945-1975 exhibition, which will open to visitors ahead of the program at 5:30 p.m.
