This image of the Civil Rights act of 1964 showed us what the document stated. Of course it was signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The act was written to prohibit discrimination in public places, provided for the integration of schools and other public facilities, and made employment discrimination illegal against African Americans. "This document was the most sweeping civil rights legislation since Reconstruction."

This webpage tells how when Lyndon was president, blacks were treated rough inside the law. He fought along with Martin Luther King to change that. In 1964 it was finally made illegal. So blacks were able to go to same schools, have the same job just as whites of the time did. This helped us to know how it was like and what President Johnson had to do to during those times.

"1964 Civil Rights Act." Infoplease Online Encyclopedia. Online. 10/22/05.

This site tells how the world changed after the civil rights bill was signed in 1964. The schools changed drastically. People became untied with one and other. By 1967 22% of blacks went to school with whites. From then on they kept increasing and increasing all the way till today. This site helped us by teaching what kind of help did the civil rights do for the United States.

This essay was about Lyndon B. Johnson from both sides. Even from points how he was disliked and not just liked. Lyndon Baines Johnson was said to be kind, generous, compassionate, considerate, decent, devoted, cruel dictatorial, grandiose and even vicious. This essay is amazing, showing both about his childhood darkness and his fun childhood.
