When President Lyndon B. Johnson gave the commencement speech at the University of Michigan in 1964 challenging Americans to build a "Great Society," the numerous policies and domestic reforms that would result, such as the Voting Rights Act and the creation of Medicare were unformed.  MHC Board President Dr. Lenneal Henderson, Distinguished Professor at the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Baltimore, reflects on the 50 year legacy of "Great Society" reforms and their future.
