learning something new

Watched All The Way tonight, a retelling of the events after the JFK assassination as LBJ took over the presidency and the events surrounding the passing of the first civil rights bill. Not a play to be seen while suffering from sleep deprivation, but still a fascinating look at history. I had not known the complete history, probably because firstly things like people, places and dates aren’t my thing but secondly because it is not the history that I identify with. It was interesting sitting there and eavesdropping in on the Americans in the crowd who also did not know the full story.
