50th Anniversary: Civil Rights Act

Freedom Rider Joan Trumpauer Mulholland talks with members of the No Chains singing group, which performed at a gathering at the Education Department in Washington today to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is considered one of the most celebrated legislative achievements in U.S. history. Signed on July 2, 1964, by President Lyndon B. Johnson, this law made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, and barred unequal application of voter registration requirements.
