Summary: The clip explains that during the 1960 presidential campaign, John F. Kennedy promised to end segregation with the stroke of a pen. His inaction once he was elected fueled the disillusionment of African Americans. Their attempt to desegregate Birmingham turned out masses of protestors. Birmingham Sheriff Bull Conner seemed to be handling the situation but then Martin Luther King decided to use high school students as demonstrators. A series of desegregation efforts like this forced the administration to open up public accommodations and integrate interstate travel and publically-supported universities. President Johnson applies public and private pressure on the Senate to pass the Civil Rights bill stalled by the Southern filibuster.
