Description:

Prepared by Arthur Brown, Middle School 391, Bronx, NY.

Also called "President Lyndon B. Johnson's Commencement Address at Howard University: "To Fulfill These Rights"", June 4, 1965.

"On June 4, 1965, Lyndon Johnson gave a commencement address to students at Howard University. This document is important because Johnson discusses the plight of African Americans and also sheds light on his concern about their ongoing struggle. Students should understand why Johnson gave this commencement address and how it may have prompted people to improve the conditions in their community and the nation. This lesson has been designed for middle school students." Taken from http://www.gilderlehrman.org/teachers/seminar_docs/civilrights_doc4.html
