Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson both sought to fight poverty and racial inequality. The legislation that Kennedy proposed was called the New Frontier and that which Johnson proposed was called the Great Society. Even though some of Kennedy’s ideas didn’t become enacted until Johnson became president, it is still important to recognize the elements of what each president tried to accomplish.
