6:30 PM Program

Join the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, in partnership with the Institute for Global Engagement at Dallas Baptist University, for a special event featuring former Attorney General Bill Barr. He will share about his memoir, One Damn Thing After Another, and open up about his time in office. Where the Bush administration navigated such turning points in American history as the Los Angeles uprisings and Pan Am 103 bombing, he will contrast with his reappointment nearly 30 years later in the Trump administration, navigating Covid-19 outbreaks, civil unrest, impeachment trials, and the 2020 election. Ultimately, Barr will describe how it is often One Damn Thing After Another

William BarrWilliam P. Barr served as Attorney General under the administrations of President George H.W. Bush and President Donald Trump. After initially serving in the Reagan White House as Deputy Assistant Director for Legal Policy on the domestic policy staff, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General by President Bush and ultimately became the 77th Attorney General. In the last two years of the Trump White House, Barr came out of retirement to serve as the 85th Attorney General before resigning in December 2020. He holds an A.B. and M.A. from Columbia University and a J.D. from George Washington University.
