Special Screening—Austin says
Join documentary filmmaker Jeri Rice at the LBJ Presidential Library for a very special screening of "Embargo".

There will be a post-screening panel discussion moderated by Ginger Wright McGuire, daughter of former United States House Speaker, Jim Wright, (D) Texas. Panelist include: Russ Baker, investigative journalist, author, "Family of Secrets"; Dr. James Galbraith, Lloyd M. Bentsen Chair in Government, LBJ School of Public Affairs; Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Defense Secretary Colin Powell.

7:00 pm — Screening
