What is the Civil Rights Act of 1964?
The Jim Crow Laws stated that minorities were to be regarded as ‘Separate but Equal’ . This meant that they would be afforded all of the rights of white citizens, but were to exist separately from the general Caucasian population. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 abolished segregation, as well as prejudice with regard to employment opportunities and memberships.
