Civil Rights Act Of 1964
Earlier this month, the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act was celebrated. During the act's legislative debate, then-Sen. Hubert Humphrey, responding to predictions, promised, "I'll eat my hat if this leads to racial quotas."
Fifty years ago, the landmark legislation known as the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 became the law of the land. It's very passage was the culmination of a century worth of sweat and struggle to codify the gains made during the Civil War.
