Abstract. The Civil Rights Movement is deeply intertwined with Lyndon B. Johnson. Throughout his career, Johnson supported the quest of African-Americans for political and civil rights. They found in him an ally whose role was fundamental in fullfilling the goals of Martin Luther King, Jr, and the Civil Rights Movement. This paper will examine the role of the Johnson presidency in the passage of the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1964.

Key words: African-American history, Civil Rights Movement, Presidency, Civil Rights Act, Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ), Martin Luther King, Jr.
