Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment

  • Date: Thursday, June 13
  • Time: 12:00 noon CT
  • Location: ACB 240

Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment is the first and only film ever shot candidly of a President making decisions during a crisis. Crisis is the most intimate and engaging film of John and Bobby Kennedy ever made. In June of 1963, the President and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, faced one of the gravest racial confrontations of the 20th century. Despite a federal court order, Alabama Governor George Wallace vowed he would personally bar the door to the all-white University of Alabama to prevent two black students from enrolling at the school. With unprecedented access inside the oval office and rare footage of John and Bobby making critical, last minute decisions, Crisis is an astonishing and suspenseful film classic.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
