The Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Voting Rights Act of 1965. Creation of Job Corps, EEOC and VISTA. NASA revived. Public Broadcasting Act that led to PBS and NPR. Freedom of Information Act [FOIA]. These and more are the legacy of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, described as,
“… an incredible blend of badgering, cajolery, reminders of past favors, promises of future favors, predictions of gloom if something doesn’t happen. When that man started to work on you, all of a sudden, you just felt that you were standing under a waterfall and the stuff was pouring on you.”
The Library’s online resources include documents, photos, and audio/video recordings.
[important]I encourage you to visit the LBJ Presidential Library on the campus of The University of Texas in Austin, TX. Read official volumes. Interactive exhibits such as intelligence reports on the Vietnam War. A walk into a scaled down complete replica of the Johnson Oval Office. See the desk used to sign civil rights legislation. View clothing worn by President and Lady Bird Johnson during the swearing-in on Nov. 22., 1963 – the day tragic day President Kennedy was assassinated.[/important]
