The emergence and the vigorous growth of the Black Rights Movement intensified by the speech of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1963 was crucial in rejuvenating the Civil Rights Movement which was wearing out. The civil rights act of 1964 was created by legislatures in America with the aim of enforcing the constitutional right of every adult citizen to vote and more so incorporating the Black Americans who previously didn’t have voting rights; they also aimed at eliminating discrimination in all public amenities and facilities like schools, eateries and the transport sector among a few others in an effort to minimize if not put an end to the racist tendencies that had quickly cropped and had been spreading amongst the white supremacists. This Act contained eleven segments which are procedural in nature and offer judicial interpretations. This essay contains the process of the formation of the Civil rights movement and the implications of its formation in American society.
