View the photo album for the LBJ birthday party at 903 Brewers.
Aug 31, we celebrated LBJ’s birthday and everything about the Great Society – Medicare, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 1965 Voting Rights Act; as well as his War on Poverty which included many social welfare programs to aid the poor. LBJ was successful in reducing unemployment and poverty; and bringing about economic growth. He is also hailed as a civil rights hero and for doing more for education than any other president.*
