This Month in Civil Rights

JulyThe Civil Rights Act was signed on July 2, 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. This piece of legislation outlawed segregation in schools and in public facilities; it also banned discriminatory practices in the application for voter registration. With this law, all Jim Crow laws or laws that compelled segregation in schools and public areas became invalid. Once implemented, this legislation had far-reaching affects across the entire country.
