50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, signed into law by President Lydon Johnson on July 2, 1964. The official, digital version of the law can be found on the U.S. Government Printing Office's website.

Our June new book list has a selection of new materials covering civil and political rights. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is also covered in West's Federal administrative practice and in various other standalone publications, like this 1964 BNA manual providing analysis and legislative history of the act.

Read more about this act at the Library of Congress' American Memory Federal law project and African American Odyssey.
