LBJ Library director Mark Updegrove, Blanton Museum curator Evan Garza and Briscoe Center for American History director Don Carleton are engaging in a conversation about the civil rights movement in the LBJ Auditorium. Images from the Blanton Museum’s “Witness” exhibit and from the library’s “March to Freedom” exhibit (which includes photos from the 2014 Civil Rights Summit) are among the topics of discussion. You’ll be able to explore this exhibit afterward. Plus, if you come early, Updegrove will be signing copies of his new book, “Destiny of Democracy,” about the civil rights movement and President Johnson’s legacy.

Details: 6 p.m. Free. 2313 Red River St. 512-721-0200, www.lbjlibrary.org.
