A panel discussion was held at the release of annotated transcripts of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s White House tapes of June 1 - July 4, 1964. In those 34 days he was occupied by America’s role in Vietnam, Senate passage of the Civil Rights Act, and an unfolding crisis with the disappearance of three Civil Rights workers in Mississippi. Segments of the tapes were played. Topics included the difficulties of the process of transcribing audio tapes and the insights into policy making, politics, and personalities that have been gained from the recordings. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience.

“LBJ Tapes: Mississippi Burning & Passage of the Civil Rights Act” was a program at the National Archives in partnership with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center. close
