Considered the most important U.S. civil rights law, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was proposed by President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and passed by his successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, the following year. The landmark law prohibiting discrimination in public facilities, government, and employment based on race, color, religion, or national origin is brought to life in this meticulously researched and excitingly illustrated volume from the new "Milestones in American History" series.
