Teach Texas - Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

Although many American citizens of foreign descent lost their civil liberties and basic rights as a result of the WWII internment camp in Crystal City, Texas, Texans later experienced the benefits of the landmark civil rights legislation passed during the administration of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Political leaders who supported the 1960 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act were largely motivated by the non-violent protests, litigation, and grassroots mobilization of minority groups across the U.S. and Texas.
