A nation still divided on race celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights law. As you read and/or listen to the various social commentary and analysis, there's a particular focus on how the 1964 civil rights law transformed the nation by dismantling American apartheid. Consider for a moment how Jim Crow and states rights shackled black life in America where entry onto public spaces were severely restricted or just simply denied. Swimming pools, movie theaters, hotels. motels, restaurants, public transportation, libraries, hospitals and even cemeteries are just a few examples of just how deep the racial divide was before the 1964 Civil Rrights bill was passed.
