KMOS-TV to air 10-Part Vietnam War Documentary this Fall

Adding to the University of Central Missouri’s plans to host The Wall that Heals this summer, the university’s public television station, KMOS-TV, joins efforts to educate local citizens about the Vietnam War through a heralded 10-part Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary series this fall preceded by grant-funded community engagement/preview events.

These special events are in conjunction with other campus efforts to share information about the Vietnam War, with primary focus on The Wall That Heals mobile exhibit, hosted by UCM’s McClure Archives and University Museum June 29-July 2.

While the Vietnam exhibit is on campus, KMOS will sponsor an event in which attendees can preview an episode of The Vietnam War. Although dates have not yet been announced, two other screenings are planned later in the summer at Lincoln University in Jefferson City and at a college in Columbia, still to be confirmed. Discussions that follow the events will be recorded by KMOS for possible broadcast in conjunction with the documentary’s airing in September.

KMOS also is working with Amber Clifford-Napoleone, associate professor of anthropology and director of the McClure Archives and University Museum, to record stories from local veterans of the Vietnam War. These recordings will be preserved on campus and shared with the Library of Congress.

Clifford-Napoleone also noted, any Vietnam Era veteran, regardless of duty station, is welcome to volunteer for an interview by calling 660-543-4649.
