JFK & LBJ: A Time for Greatness + Pinboard

Often remembered for his role in the Vietnam War, President Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy consists of much more. Johnson engineered two of the most important laws Congress passed; the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of President Johnson’s signing of the Voting Rights Act (August 6, 1965), JFK & LBJ: A Time for Greatness examines how Johnson meticulously worked behind the scenes to outwit the Southern segregationists who were determined to maintain the racial divide. Discover the ways Johnson not only continued Kennedy’s legacy but created one of his own. 

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the special takes viewers into the moments and conversations that forever changed America. The dramatic events are told through rare archival footage, interviews and reenactments. 

JFK & LBJ: A Time For Greatness premieres Tuesday, August 4th at 9 p.m.
