Get in the Way: The Journey of John Lewis
In honor of Black History Month and The LBJ School of Public Affairs' 2017 Barbara Jordan Forum Week, the LBJ Presidential Library held a screening and discussion of the new 60-minute film, Get in the Way: The Journey of John Lewis, on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

Get in the Way is the first documentary biography about U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, the civil rights hero and respected legislator whose unwavering fight for justice spans the past 50 years. The discussion panelists were Kathleen Dowdey, director of the film; Nelson Linder, president of the NAACP's Austin chapter; and Dr. Tasha Philpot, associate professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin and a scholar of black congressional history. The discussion was moderated by Paul Stekler, professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and chair of the Department of Radio and Television Film in UT’s Moody College of Communication.
