civil_rights_act johnson and kingIt will be 50 years Tuesday July 2 when President Lyndon B. Johnson along with Martin Luther King Jr. looking on signed into law The Civil Rights Act of 1964.  This landmark legislation in the United States outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin.  It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregtion in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public (known as “public accommodations”).  I believe this legislation made it possible for us to see a Black President in our time.
