464217344attends the 87th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 22, 2015 in Hollywood, California.
It has been 50 years since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, and it is truly something to celebrate today. We have encountered so much as a people and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an open door to equality. Of course it did not come without struggle, but it changed the lives of many in the past and would change the outlooks of the future.
It allowed the government to strike down horrible things like segregation and enforced fair hiring practices in the workplace. It was an act of political and moral courage and relentless activism. The Atlanta History Center is hosting its Civil Rights 50 Lectures again this Wednesday, July 23rd. Clay Risen, New York Times Op-Ed Editor, will be presenting The Bill of the Century: The Epic Battle for the Civil Rights Act at 8pm.
