The William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences: Please join us for a discussion with Oliver Stone and Professor Peter Kuznick on their Showtime television series and book entitled The Untold History of the United States.
Many citizens may be surprised at how much of our real history has been left out of our education. One can question interpretations but much of what Stone and Kuznick present has been obscured or omitted in mainstream texts and media, often deliberately, because some facts challenge our self-conception as an “exceptional” nation.
Oliver Stone is a three-time Academy Award winning filmmaker and Director of such notable films as Platoon, JFK, Born on the 4th of July, Wall Street and Midnight Express. Peter Kuznick is Professor of History at American University and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute.
Excerpts from the filmed series will precede the discussion.
1:00 PM, Friday, April 4, 2014, Snowden Auditorium, Wheatley
