Upcoming NARA Program on the 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

My husband and I are going to attend the ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor next week. If you’re in Washington, you can attend a free public program at the National Archives.

On Wednesday, December 7th at 7 PM, The National Archives, in partnership with the Newseum, commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack with a free public program in the William G. McGowan Theater of the National Archives Building.

The program, “It Is No Joke—It Is a Real War”: How Americans First Learned of Pearl Harbor, features journalist Marvin Kalb using film, audio, and photographic records from the National Archives and the Newseum to discuss how the media informed Americans of the 1941 attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
