Lady Bird Johson: Hiding in Plain Sight

America’s First Ladies are not elected politicians, but they are nevertheless immersed in the world of politics and often underestimated or ignored as political beings. A new biography by Dr. Julia Sweig, the award-winning author of "Lady Bird Johnson: Hiding in Plain Sight" (Random House, 2021), examines for the first time in detail this side of Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson as she advised and strategized with her powerfully political husband, President Lyndon Baines Johnson. In this Talk, Dr. Nancy Baker Jones, Moderator and historian of Texas women in politics, and Sweig discuss Lady Bird in this new light.
