This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights Movement - President Lyndon Johnson. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Lyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was the 36th President of the United States, a position he assumed after President Kennedy was assassinated. Johnson was a Democrat from TX who served as a United States Representative from 1937 to 1949 and as a United States Senator from 1949 to 1961, including 6 years as Senate Majority Leader, 2 as Senate Minority Leader, and 2 as Senate Majority Whip.
During his administration, Johnson initiated the "Great Society" social service programs, signed the Civil Rights Act into law, and bore the brunt of national opposition to his vast expansion of American involvement in the Vietnam War. By 1967, the escalating war in Vietnam was consuming Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency. Criticism surrounded his administration's handling of the war found in the nation's media, and anti-war protests had begun to spring up on college campuses and major cities. By 1968, more than 500,000 U.S. troops were in Vietnam, and there seemed to be no end in sight.
As the next election campaign geared up, Democrats were split into 4 factions, each despising the other 3, and Johnson had lost control of his party. His approval rating plummeted to 36%. On March 31, 1968, Johnson shocked the nation by announcing that he would not seek re-election. When Johnson left office in January 1969, peace talks in Vietnam were under way, but it would take another 4 years before the United States was completely out of Vietnam.
