Johnson’s first job out of college was teaching Hispanic students, an experience that brought him to see the wisdom of civil rights laws and great education. Who was in TV 2301.01 — and did they realize they’d have met with a president if they’d stayed in their classroom?
The photo was taken on April 27, 1970. It comes from the collection of the LBJ Presidential Library, in Austin, Texas, via Wikimedia. The Lyndon Johnson School for Public Affairs was established in 1970, but this photo may have been too early in the year for a class there.
Anyone have more details? (See update below.)
Update: This photo may have been taken at LBJ’s alma mater, now the Texas State University at San Marcos, judging by this other photo I found at Humanties Texas.
Update, September 10, 2014: Thanks @c_banks.
