Description of event: Congress passed Public law 88-352(78 Stat.241) provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This included the Jim Crow Laws, segregation of race in schools, jobs and housing, establish rules/laws for public facilities and the implement of the Fair Employment Practices Commission.
Why did I include it? This Act forbade any discrimination on the basis of sex and race in hiring, firing and promotions. It also helps create the EEOC which is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to implement the new law. Without this law employers, would be able to use a person(s) race, religion or national origin to discriminate against them and treat them unfairly.
The Vulnerable class intended for protection: Historically, African Americans but it was intended for all minorities.
How the specific even affected the civil rights movement: It helped to usher in new expectations of how minorities should be treated and the law was created to make that transition. What this did was force people who had the power to adhere by rules and not their own anymore. It helps African Americans and other minorities receive fair treatment that was granted in the U. S. Constitution, but the States ignored.
