The Sterling Hall bombing occurred on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus on August 24, 1970, as a protest by four men against the university's research connections with the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. It resulted in the death of a university physics researcher and injuries to three others. This documentary looks back at the bombing through interviews with some of those who experienced it. Following the film screening, Christopher Lee, owner of Leemark Communications, will lead a discussion of his 1999 documentary film.
This presentation is part of a program series related to the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick film, The Vietnam War. Programming for The Vietnam War is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association, PBS, and WETA Washington, D.C.
