Jfk Lbj: Transition Of Power says
Two hours and eight minutes after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn-in aboard Air Force One as the thirty-sixth President of the United States. As a single, solemn black and white photograph of the swearing-in made its way around the world, a concerned global community was reassured that, despite the tragic events in Dallas, the transition of power in the United States would be a smooth and orderly process.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and The Dallas Theater Center have partnered to present programming for the Dallas premiere of the play, All the Way, winner of a 2014 Tony Award. Join in a free public community conversation at The Sixth Floor Museum as we discuss the transfer of power from Kennedy to Johnson, and hear in person from those who worked during both administrations.

Museum Curator Stephen Fagin will moderate a panel including:
• Julian Read, press advisor to Gov. John Connally in 1963
• Walt Coughlin, Secret Service agent who served on the White House detail under both Kennedy and Johnson
• Eamon Kennedy, Dallas Times Herald photojournalist who photographed Kennedy and Johnson in the 1960s

This event is free but RSVP is required. RSVP: https://www.dallastheatercenter.org/community-engagement.php
