Making the Nation Whole: Civil Rights and Lyndon Baines Johnson

On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, legislation that outlawed segregation and discrimination in schools, the work place, public places, and in the unequal application of voter registration requirements. Using archival footage and the text of the civil rights act, this lesson plan explores the landmark legislation enacted during the Johnson administration. It correlates with TEKS curriculum objectives in US History Studies Since Reconstruction, United States Government, and Grade Seven Social Studies.
