Fascinating look on LBJ’s presidency in pursing the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the politicking in winning reelection soon afterwards. Not covered were his other two great Presidential achievements a year after:
08/06/1965 - signed the Voting Rights Act.
07/30/1965 - created Medicare, Medicaid.
Makes you wish he had run for a second term.

Note: If you enjoyed the docudrama, don't miss the Special Features “All The Way: A Walk Through History.” I added quotes from this short feature instead of the main film as they were words from esteemed historians.
