      Before TV, newsreels brought sight and sound to the reporting of news events. Those flickering black and white images still have the power to draw us into history. In partnership with the Newseum, the National Archives and The Charles Guggenheim Center for the Documentary Film present a discussion and newsreel screening exploring the legacy of the American newsreel. Participating in the discussion will be Dr. Raymond Fielding, Dean Emeritus at Florida State University and author of The American Newsreel: 1911-1967 and Les Waffen, chief of the Motion Picture, Sound & Video branch of the National Archives’ Special Media Archives Services Division. Rich Foster, Newseum Programs Director, will moderate.
