FSU’s Cultural Events Series, MPT to Offer Sneak Preview of Ken Burns WWII Documentary

Frostburg State University’s Cultural Events Series is teaming up with Maryland Public Television (MPT) to offer a community screening of Ken Burns’ new documentary about World War II, “The War.” This sneak preview, which condenses Burns’ seven-part, 14-hour series into a one-hour summary of program highlights, will be shown at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13, in the Lane University Center’s Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall. The event is free and open to the public; people who want to see the film may RSVP by calling (301) 687-3137.

MPT representatives will attend the screening at FSU to introduce the program. FSU is one of many presenters throughout the state that is offering the sneak preview of the much-anticipated documentary series, which includes interviews with WWII veterans and officially debuts on MPT Sept. 23. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Greg Wood, an FSU assistant professor of history who specializes in American history; David Rands, an FSU history instructor who focuses on the history of Japan; and a World War II veteran. The discussion will be moderated by FSU History Department faculty.

For more information about the screening at FSU, call (301) 687-3137. To learn more about Burns’ documentary and its airing on MPT, visit
