“Black Jack Pershing: Love and War” makes it’s San Francisco premiere at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 1 at the Presidio Officers’ Club.
Pershing has a historic connection with the Presidio. He was commandant there in the years preceding America’s entry into World War I in 1917.
Hidden beneath Pershing’s iron exterior was a man who endured great personal tragedy and heartbreak. The screening will be followed by a discussion with film producer Barney McCoy and Presidio Trust Historian Dr. Barbara Berglund Sokolov, who is featured in the film.
I invite all of our San Francisco and Bay area friends to attend.
