About the Event

Explore aspects of and reactions to the Vietnam War in this program that features live performances of pop and folk music from the 1960s—from Pete Seeger to Woodstock—coupled with extraordinary photographs and film footage. Narrated by John Monsky, who has created a new form of storytelling in this and other multimedia presentations at the New-York Historical Society, this event captures the war’s intense emotions on the battlefield and at home. The afternoon begins with the Friction Quartet performing George Crumb’s amplified string quartet Black Angels, a searing response to the Vietnam War.
