Transcript of CIVIL RIGHTS

CIVIL RIGHTS: context
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, is considered one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement. First proposed by President John F. Kennedy, it survived strong opposition from southern members of Congress and was then signed into law by Kennedy’s successor, Lyndon B. Johnson. In subsequent years, Congress expanded the act and also passed additional legislation aimed at bringing equality to African Americans, such as the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
THE MOVEMENT
The civil rights movement gave black Americans legal equality:

The Civil Rights Act (1964) outlawed segregation in schools, public places or jobs.

The Voting Rights Act (1965) gave all black people the vote.
The Fair Housing Act (1968) banned discrimination in housing

MLK SPEECH
I say to you today, my friends
, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still
have a dream
. It is a
dream deeply
rooted in the American dream.

I
have a dream
that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed
: "
We hold these truths to be self-evident
;

that all men are created equal
."

I
have a dream
that one day on the red hills of Georgia the
s
ons of former
s
laves and the
s
ons of former
s
lave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I

have a dream
that one day even the state of Mississippi, a
state sweltering
with the heat of injustice,
sweltering
with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I
have a dream
that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the
c
ontent of their
c
haracter.

I
have a dream
today
summary
Throughout the text the perspectives are kept the same this can be shown with the use of repetition of "i have a dream".Showing the main focus throughout so that we are aware of what is being said and the reason why. The main point in this is that martin luther king wants everyone from all races to become equal and live together. And in this speech talks about the struggles the black communtiy face each and everyday.
RESTRICTIONS
Under the Civil Rights Act, segregation on the grounds of race, religion or national origin was banned at all places of public accommodation, including courthouses, parks, restaurants, theaters, sports arenas and hotels. No longer could blacks and other minorities be denied service simply based on the color of their skin. The act also barred race, religious, national origin and gender discrimination by employers and labor unions, and created an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission with the power to file lawsuits on behalf of aggrieved workers.
