Louisville’s Frazier Museum Marks 40th Anniversary of the End of Vietnam War

The Frazier Museum presents Louisville Writer Graham Shelby’s The Man on TV”

The first time Graham laid eyes on his birth father, Graham was 12 and his father was featured on the CBS Evening News. Jimmy Godwin was a former Green Beret who told America about the battles he’d fought and friends he’d lost. Join us for a multimedia storytelling event that follows Graham’s 25-year journey to understand how a distant war can echo through the lives of families long after the last shot is fired.
