Judgment Days: Lyndon Baines Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the
Laws That Changed America (HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, 2005)
With author Nick Kotz; moderated by Sam Freedman, Columbia University
School of Journalism
Celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Opposites in almost every
way, suspicious of each other at first, President Johnson and Dr. King were
thrust together in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Both
men sensed an opportunity and began a delicate dance of accommodation that
moved them and the entire nation toward the historic Civil Rights Act of
1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nick Kotz draws on a wealth of newly
available sources - from President Johnson’s telephone conversations to FBI
wiretap logs - to provide the first definitive account of the relationship
between these two great leaders.
