LBJ’s legacy on social issues

September 16 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am

A panel discussion with the artistic team of the Chicago-based dance company The Seldoms, which is presenting Power Goes at the Texas Performing Arts Center on September 16-18.

President Lyndon Baines Johnson said, “Power is where power goes.” LBJ certainly hungered for power—and knew how to wield it. He intrinsically recognized that effective governance relies on successful performance, both public and private. Such displays of power established LBJ’s political career and helped push forward transformative legislation such as the Civil Rights Act and the Medicare Bill. In Power Goes, The Seldoms use the figure of LBJ as a lens to view power more broadly and to ask if the robust political muscle that LBJ embodied can even be possible in the United States today.

Please RSVP to vpackheiser@mail.utexas.edu, as seating may be limited.
