Part 4: Papers of the White House Conference on Civil Rights: is a comprehensive record of the most important civil rights conference of the Johnson years.” It was called “To Fulfill These Rights” (June 1-2, 1966). Part V: Records of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders (Kerner Commission): contains all of the key records of the commission and is the best source of documentation for the study of the riots that shook the United States in the mid-1960s.” (LexisNexis).
