My Lai Memorial Exhibit Featured At ASU in Phoenix
In early October the My Lai Memorial Exhibit was featured in a six-day event involving more than a dozen thoughtful presentations by faculty and Veterans for Peace members at the Downtown Phoenix campus at Arizona State University.
The event was organized by Nancy Dallett in the Office for Veteran and Military Academic Engagement and co-sponsored by the ASU Library, the Center on the Future of War, and the Phoenix chapter of Veterans for Peace.
In her invite to the collage community Nancy explained that as “a member of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, the My Lai Memorial Exhibit creates a space for dialogue to navigate a contested history, to pose questions about the human costs of war, and to commit to peace and social justice both at home and abroad”.
Members of the Phoenix Chapter of Veterans for Peace engaged participants in reflection and discussion and worked closely with the vibrant library staff to set up the exhibit and get it back in the trailer when the exhibit closed.
