Black Jack Pershing: Love and War


A screening and audience discussion by the producer/director of “Black Jack Pershing: Love and War.” The 56-minute documentary chronicles the historic life of WWI General John J. Pershing and his important Nebraska ties. Pershing's U.S. troops overcame the German military, helped the Allies win World War I, and contributed to America's emergence as a global superpower. To succeed, Pershing also had to overcome personal tragedy and heartbreak he could never speak of for the rest of his life. (1-1/2 hours are required for screening followed with a half hour audience discussion. A projector and sound system are required that would allow play of the documentary from a standard DVD or Bluray DVD.)
