* American Civil Rights Act of 1964
* Passes Congress - signing into law
* Nice headline for display
* Early, same day report
The front page features an historic banner headline: "HOUSE PASSES RIGHTS BILL".
The report begins: "The House finally passed and sent to the White House today far-reaching civil rights legislation born of race violence, bombings, vote curbs and continued resistance to school integration...". President Johnson would sign the bill on this day making it the law of the land.
As noted in Wikipedia: "The Civil Rights Act of 1964, enacted July 2, was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States that outlawed major forms of discrimination against blacks and women, and ended racial segregation in the United States. It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public."
Complete in ten pages, rejoined at the spine, great condition.
