In the 1960s, presidential initiatives, judicial rulings, and social protest movements generated reform. This included the civil rights movement, the women’s movement, the youth movement, and the environmental movement. They also created a climate of rebellion, confrontation, and upheaval.
John Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon in the presidential election of 1960, the first election in which televised debates between presidential candidates played a major role. Kennedy was handsome, dynamic, articulate, and youthful. When he accepted the Democratic nomination, Kennedy urged Americans to meet the challenges of a "New Frontier." Unfortunately he died before he saw any progress in these movements.

Judicial activism completed the liberal agenda of the 1960s. Ever since Earl Warren's appointment as chief justice in 1953, the Supreme Court had enraged critics on the right, who pressed for Warren's impeachment.
In the 1950,s the Warren Court had integrated public schools in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka (1954). In the 1960s, Kennedy and Johnson appointed four Supreme Court justices, including Thurgood Marshall, the NAACP lawyer who had argued the Brown case and the high court's first African American justice.
With a liberal majority in place, the Warren court handed down a series of landmark cases that changed civil liberties and spurred or legitimized social change.
