LBJ FORUM, Oct. 12, 2020: In the Arena: Defining a New Destiny

On Monday, Oct. 12, the LBJ School of Public Affairs presented the first forum of its 50th anniversary celebration. The prime-time presentation, "In the Arena: Defining a New Destiny," featured some of today's most important thinkers and doers sharing their sense of purpose in the fight for racial justice and equity, and discussing the leadership and vision that can lead us forward.

"This once-in-a lifetime anniversary not only reflects the force of 50 years of impact by those who taught at and attended the LBJ School, but more importantly, it also musters this force to forge new pathways to think about and act upon the future," said Angela Evans, dean of the LBJ School. "We thank the LBJ Foundation for its support of this ambitious endeavor and its shared commitment to ignite emerging generations of young people driven by purpose and a desire to build a better world."
