Sept. 25, 6:30 pm: Film Showing: "Sir! No Sir"!"

Thursday, Sept. 25, 6:30 pm

Film-screening: "Sir! No Sir!" (2006)
Documentary about GI resistance and movement to end the Vietnam War.
Film by David Zeiger.

Brooklyn Historical Society,
128 Pierrepont Street, (corner of Clinton),
Brooklyn Heights.
(Trains: M,N,R, to Court Street; A,C to High Street; 2,3,4,5 to Boro Hall; A,C,F to Jay Street.)

Commentator: Dr. Howard Levy (interviewed in the film), Brooklyn physician, who refused to train Green Berets. He was court-martialled, and served three years in prison.

This is the story of one of the most vibrant and widespread upheavals of the 1960’s--one that had a profound impact on American society yet has been virtually obliterated from the collective memory of that time.

Second in a five-part film series about the Vietnam War,
co-hosted by Brooklyn For Peace and the Brooklyn Historical Society, in conjunction with BHS's exhibit: In Our Own Words: Portraits of Brooklyn Vietnam Veterans.

Free Admission to the film.
Come early to see the exhibit.
Museum normally closes at 5:00 pm, but will be open prior to the screening, until 6:30 pm (pay-what-you-wish admission).
