Oct. 21, 2010: Why Me? - Special Screening of the Pioneering Documentary on Breast Cancer

In 1974, journalism professor Joe Saltzman produced Why Me?, a landmark documentary acknowledged to be the first television documentary on breast cancer. This groundbreaking program was viewed by one out of every three women in the Western world, and has been credited with saving thousands of lives. In 1974, it was an act of courage for a woman to appear on television to talk about what was considered a deadly disease. This event will feature a screening of the documentary and a panel moderated by television correspondent and journalism professor Judy Muller about the making of the program and how it paved the way for contemporary documentaries. The panel will also look at current television dramas and their portrayal of breast-cancer awareness and treatment.
