The Draft Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Mon, Apr 27, 2015 -- 9:00 PM

Race, class, culture - the draft in the 1960s and 1970s was a lightning rod that lit up every schism in American society. But ending the draft has produced unintended consequences, creating a citizenry completely disconnected from that of the soldiers who experience the burden of endless wars. Featuring interviews with the people who fought the draft, supported it and lived its realities, this program tells the story of how a single, controversial issue continues to define a nation. Part of PBS Stories of Service.
