Julian Bond, Andrew Young and Representative John Lewis talked about their roles in the Civil Rights Movement. The men were key players in many of the Movement’s most memorable events. They reflected on those experiences, as well as their personal moments of triumph and despair, and the role of women and students in the struggle for equality.

Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of President Johnson’s signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act on July 2, 1964. close
