1965: In a dramatic joint-session address, President Lyndon B. Johnson tells Congress "We shall overcome" in calling for a strong voting rights bill preventing discrimination in voting. Two days later, Johnson's administration sent Congress the draft of a bill that would eventually pass both the Senate and the House as the Voting Rights Act and be signed into law by Johnson on Aug. 6, 1965.
