Civil Rights: From Lincoln to Today
Description:
At the 1963 March on Washington, Dr. King famously said that he was in the nation's capital to "cash a check" for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, as promised a hundred years earlier by the Emancipation Proclamation. In this session, we'll take a look at the legacy of Lincoln's famous decree and the work that many leaders, ordinary citizens and even students undertook during the Civil Rights Movement to make a difference in today's world. Presented by: Christopher W. Wilson, National Museum of American History Naomi Coquillon, National Museum of American History Original Airdate: February 13, 2013 You can stay connected with the Smithsonian's upcoming online events and view a full collection of past sessions on a variety of topics.: http://www.smithsonianeducation.org/educators/events/online_events.html

Civil Rights History Project Interview with Lawrence Guyot
Description:
Fearless, courageous, brilliant, persistent, generous, visionary, and a civil rights warrior are just some of the accolades that have been used to describe Lawrence Guyot. While a student of Tougaloo College, he became active in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). As a field secretary and as director of the 1964 Freedom Summer Project, he mobilized voter education and registration programs for Blacks in Mississippi. He and Fannie Lou Hamer were founding members of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP), which challenged the exclusionary nature of the traditional Democratic Party in Mississippi. The MFDP sent a delegation to the 1964 Democratic National Convention, which did not unseat the Democratic Party from Mississippi, but they were responsible for integrating (on the basis of race and gender) the Mississippi Democratic Party and they contributed substantially to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

President Lyndon Johnson signs the Civil Rights Bill at the White House
After criticizing President John F. Kennedy for failing to advance civil rights legislation, King was elated when Kennedy addressed the nation on June 11, 1963, and pledged to seek passage of a civil rights bill that would provide "equality of treatment" to every American. Sent to the House on June 19, the bill soon became stalled in committee, where it languished until President Kennedy’s assassination on November 22. Declaring that prompt passage of Kennedy’s civil rights bill would be the most fitting way to honor the late president, Lyndon Johnson successfully pressured Congress to bring it to a vote. The bill cleared the House on February 10, 1964, and reached the Senate floor on March 30, where it was blocked by a filibuster until June 10. When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was finally signed into law by President Johnson on July 2, King (second row, center) attended the ceremony.
