Iwo Jima and the photograph that changed America
Submitted By Addie Silveira
The iconic image of Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima is the most recognized and reproduced photograph in history. Taken by the late Joe Rosenthal in the midst of battle, the photo had a significant impact. After over 70 years, the image symbolizes the U.S. Marine Corps and still projects AmericaÕs might and determination.
The program will begin with a short film on the battle and flag raising, followed by a panel discussion, which will include veterans of the battle. The panel will be moderated by Tom Graves, author and Chapter Historian of the Joe Rosenthal Chapter, USMC Combat Correspondents Association. A Q&A session will follow the panel, and everyone is invited after for an ice cream social.
This program is hosted by the San Leandro Library Veterans Resource Center in partnership with the San Leandro Historical Society.
