Summary

In this July 29, 1967, photo provided by the U.S. Library of Congress, President Lyndon B. Johnson interacts with members of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders (Kerner Commission) in the White House. The commission's report, issued in 1968, detailed the root causes of racial tensions in America and provided guidelines to ease civil unrest in the U.S. The report called out unfair hiring practices across news agencies in America, helping to eliminate discriminatory hiring practices across the U.S. mass media.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
