The battle for the Vietnamese city of Hue was a turning point in the Vietnam War – both on the ground in Vietnam and for the American public back home. That’s why author Mark Bowden has made it the subject of his most recent book, Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam.

Bowden, the author of such books as Black Hawk Down, holds an event tonight (Oct. 23) at 7 at Brazos Bookstore.

He tells Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty about the city of Hue, its capture, the bloody battle to retake it, and how it changed Americans’ perception of the war – and their government.

In the early 1970’s there were fewer than 100 ethnic Vietnamese in Houston. Today, the region is home to more Vietnamese Americans than any other place in America outside of California. This program highlights the fascinating and often harrowing stories of several Vietnamese families as they escaped Vietnam and came to call Houston home.

The concept is simple: bring together a Vietnam veteran and a Vietnamese refugee who immigrated to the US after the war for a simple meal, and see where the conversation leads. Then do the same with a 2nd generation immigrant and child of a veteran. The goal of the program is to help build bridges between Veterans and immigrant communities – who have sometimes had trouble connecting – and to shed light on the nature of citizenship, assimilation, and what it means to be an American.

Lily Jang

Houstonians know Lily Jang as a former morning news anchor for KHOU 11. A first generation American, her family moved to the United States from Saigon when she was just a year old. They were part of a wave of immigrants that came to the U.S. at the end of the Vietnam War, many of which eventually made their way to Houston.

Jang and Houston Public Media traveled to Vietnam together to discover the vibrant country and culture there today for a program called Saigon Stories, in conjunction with Ken Burns’ new documentary on The Vietnam War.

Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty talked with Jang about the special and her return trip to Vietnam.

Saigon Stories airs tonight (Sept. 18) at 8:30 following The Vietnam War on Houston Public Media, TV 8.

Like many other Vietnamese Americans of her generation, news reporter Lily Jang’s family immigrated to the US at the end of the Vietnam War, eventually making their way to Houston.

The concept is simple: bring together a Vietnam Vet and a Vietnamese refugee who immigrated to the US after the war for a simple meal, and see where the conversation leads. Then do the same with their grandchildren. We hope this program will help build bridges between Veterans and immigrants – who have sometimes had trouble connecting – and shed light on the nature of citizenship, assimilation, and what it means to be an American.
