Ten years after Brown vs Board, the Civil Rights Act was passed. This act eliminated segregation in all public places. This act also banned all discrimination based on gender, race, and religion. African Americans or whites could no longer be turned away for service or goods. Places such as restaurants, bathrooms, sporting events, etc. could no longer segregate people by the color of their skin. John F. Kennedy started the proposal for the act and was successfully signed into law by Lyndon B. Johnson. The Civil Rights Act opened the door for many acts to follow to continue to work for a diverse and equal society.
