IT WAS ON THIS DAY IN 1960 ~


William Rogers (left) and Lawrence Walsh witness signing the Civil Rights
Bill by President Eisenhower.

The Civil Rights Act of 1960 served to eliminate certain loopholes left by the Civil
Rights
Act of 1957
. It established federal inspection of local voter registration polls
and introduced penalties for anyone who obstructed someone’s attempt to register
to vote. It was also designed to deal with discriminatory laws and practices in the segregated South.
