April 30, 2015 was the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War. Pulitzer Prize photographer Nick Ut was back in Vietnam to document the anniversary. Huỳnh Công Út, known professionally as Nick Ut, won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography for his photograph of a naked 9-year-old girl, Phan Thị Kim Phúc, running toward the camera from a South Vietnamese napalm attack on North Vietnamese invaders at the Trảng Bàng village during the Vietnam War in 1972. Today, Nick is a staff photographer for AP in the Los Angeles bureau and will retire next year. He is asked to speak around the world today as he talks about world peace. He feels his photograph helped stop the war in Vietnam. President Nixon said the photograph was not authentic. Nick will talk about the anniversary of the end of the war and how Vietnamese still view the war. Should be an interesting talk with photographs of Vietnam today and during the war.
