Civil Rights Act

Civil Rights Act

President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act of 1964, mandating equal opportunity employment, and complete desegregation of schools and other public facilities. It also outlaws unequal voter registration requirements.13 Though it would take years for these changes to take effect in communities around the country, the law is a monumental victory for the civil rights movement.
