Join us for an evening of film and conversation inspired by Jim Hodges’s installation With Liberty and Justice for All (A Work in Progress). A screening of the 2016 documentary What the Hell Is the Presidency For?: LBJ’s Battle for Civil Rights considers the legacies of Lyndon Johnson and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and how the important civil rights legislation of the 1960s still affects Americans today.
Following the film, Mark K. Updegrove, Director of the LBJ Presidential Library, offers thoughts on LBJ’s presidency and social justice issues that continue to resonate today.
Co-presented by the LBJ Presidential Library.
