The Power of Protest: The Movement and the "Madman"
The Movement and the "Madman" tells how two antiwar demonstrations in the fall of 1969 helped prevent a massive escalation of the Vietnam war, including the possible use of nuclear weapons. At the time, the protesters had no idea of the impact of their actions.
Join the conversation with our speaker:
Robert Levering is the executive producer of the film The Movement and the "Madman" which premiered on PBS's American Experience on March 28th when it was watched by more than a half-million people. He was a fulltime antiwar organizer from 1967 to 1973. After the war, he worked as a journalist, wrote 8 books about the corporate workplace, and for 20 years coauthored Fortune magazine's popular annual feature "The 100 Best Companies to Work For." He was a producer of The Boys Who Said No!, a 2021 film about the draft resistance movement.
