President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law a stronger, more protective Civil
Rights Act dealing with discriminatory laws and practices in the segregated South,
by which blacks had been deprived of the right to register and vote. It served to
eliminate certain loopholes created by the Civil Rights Act of 1957.
