America in the 20th Century: The Sixties

Loading...
"In the 1960's, Americans embraced the liberal promises and programs of two presidents: John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson. Kennedy, the East Coast blue blood, and Johnson, the rough and tumble Texan, could not have been more different. Yet each embracedthe legacy of Franklin Roosevelt and sought to reshape his 'New Deal' into their own world vision. For Kennedy it was the 'New Fontier.' For Johnson, the 'Great Society.' Each had its triumphs and failures, but together they redefined the role of the federal government in American life and culture."--Original container.

As African Americans won political office across the country and the black middle class made progress, larger economic and political forces isolated the black urban poor. When Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended racism. By the time of his second victory, however, it was clear that many issues, including true racial equality, remain to be resolved?
