Synopsis by Alice Day
In American Journey: Lyndon Johnson's Great Society?, host Charles Wheeler examines the group of programs called "The Great Society," that meant to improve life for Americans. Wheeler casts a critical eye on the programs, and some of the people responsible for administering them add their comments. These programs include Medicare and Medicaid, civil rights, unemployment, and environmental programs. Wheeler also touches on Johnson's "War on Poverty," and questions the effectiveness of some of the initiatives.
