Stetson University Department of History and the Col. Bob Bowman Memorial Chapter of Veterans For Peace will present “The War at Home” on April 6, 2015 with guest speaker Kathy Bracewell. Nominated for “Best Documentary” at the 1979 Academy Awards, the film screening will be held at 7 pm in Elizabeth Hall, Room 315.
The War at Home is a film about the anti-war movement in the Madison Wisconsin area during the time of the Vietnam War. The 100-minute film focuses on student protests of government policies in the Vietnam War, clashes between students and police and the responses of politicians and the public to the turmoil.
Kathy Bracewell was a student at UW-Madison in the late 1960’s taking part in the anti-war effort while her one and only brother was fighting in the jungles of Vietnam. For more than 10 years now, Kathy has been a supporter of the Central Florida chapter of Veterans For Peace (Col. Bob Bowman Memorial Chapter) in their ongoing local activism calling for an end to this generation’s own “Vietnam” … the so-called “Global War on Terror”, aka the “9/11 Wars”.
