    Are you sure you mean from 1945? Kennedy was President from 1961-1963.

    During this time he did relatively little, although he had planned to do more. After the violent response to the Boynton v Virginia (1960) verdict and the freedom rides, he decided that the southern states weren't keeping law and order. He decided the same thing after the Birmingham Protest (1963) and demanded more significant civil rights, but died before he was able to introduce legislation.
