    Vietnam War Symposium at Tarrant County College South Campus Examines Conflict’s Beginning and Controversial Ending

    Tarrant County, Texas – Tarrant County Commissioner Andy H. Nguyen (Precinct 2) is partnering with Tarrant County College South Campus, the Vietnamese American Community of Greater Tarrant County and the Vietnamese Culture and Science Association of Dallas/Fort Worth to host a symposium entitled “Vietnam: The Struggle for Freedom and Democracy.” All are invited to attend the event on Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Tarrant County College South Campus, 5301 Campus Drive in Fort Worth.

    "Vietnam: The Struggle for Freedom and Democracy" is the first symposium of its kind in North Texas and will be presented from the rare perspective of the South Vietnamese refugees who suffered the most during this conflict. The event will be offered in English for the younger Vietnamese Americans and the general public.

    This compelling program will feature panel discussions, breakout sessions, interactive question and answers and keynote address delivered by Geoffrey Shaw, author of “The Lost Mandate of Heaven: The American Betrayal of Ngo Dinh Diem, President of Vietnam.” Tarrant County College will supply a certificate of completion for five hours of professional development.

    “We are honored to partner with Commissioner Nguyen and the Vietnamese community to host such an educational event,” said TCC South Campus President Peter Jordan. “Events such as free symposia serve as a catalyst to promote, celebrate and increase awareness about diversity and to encourage cross-cultural interaction.”
