Harry S. Truman, at the Lincoln Memorial, Promises Equality for All Americans Ca. 1947Unknown - 1947
President Truman included civil rights legislation in his domestic agenda as early as 1947. In his 1949 State of the Union address he presented his Fair Deal proposal, which included a number of civil rights initiatives. While very little of the Fair Deal became law, Truman's work did set the stage for later civil rights legislation.
