This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - The Warren Court. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
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.
The presentation covers the following:
The Warren Court
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka
The Courts Liberal Rulings
Prayer in School Unconstitutional
Griswold v. Connecticut
