What's Happening at the Library
LBJ & the Civil Rights Act of 1964
In November of 1963 President Kennedy was assassinated leaving behind a civil rights bill in Congress that did not look like it would be passed. Kennedy’s successor, Lyndon Johnson had been the Senate Majority Leader in the 1950s and knew how to get things done. This would lead eventually to the passing of one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history: The Civil Rights Act of 1964.
