On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which "outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin" in education, employment, voting, and use of public facilities. President Kennedy introduced the bill in June 1963, and Johnson made it a top priority. It was passed the House in March and by the Senate in June after a 54-day filibuster by Southern senators. #TodayInBlackHistory
