Working Class History

THe GI Resistance In Vietnam

 Part 1

With John from Working Class History, I had the opportunity to reconnect with- and interview- my favorite professor from undergrad, Jerry Lembcke. Jerry was a Vietnam Veteran who became a sociologist, and back in the day, I took his seminar on how our understandings of Vietnam are re-shaped. Despite all those amazing sessions, I never really heard Jerry's story in full.  At my college, Jerry was the "radical" professor, it's difficult to imagine Jerry as apolitical- especially since he influenced my own political engagement!
