The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is U.S. legislation intended to end discrimination based on race, color, religion, or national origin.

  • Title I of the act guarantees equal voting rights by removing registration requirements and procedures biased against minorities and the underprivileged.
  • Title II prohibits segregation or discrimination in places of public accommodation involved in interstate commerce.
  • The act also calls for the desegregation of public schools (Title IV), broadens the duties of the Civil Rights Commission (Title V), and assures nondiscrimination in the distribution of funds under federally assisted programs (Title VI).
  • Title VII bans discrimination by trade unions, schools, or employers involved in interstate commerce or doing business with the federal government. The latter section also applies to discrimination on the basis of sex and established a government agency, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), to enforce these provisions.
