Every era in American history has had notable men and women who shaped their times, for better or worse. Identify one person from this week’s reading who you believe had a significant impact on the years from 1945 to 1974. This could include a president who introduced important policies that changed the country, a social activist who inspired reform, or someone else who had an important positive or negative impact on this era. Briefly explain who this person was, their specific “individual influence” on the times, and then discuss why you made your selection.
