Description:

Booklet from the Johnston (Erle E., Jr.) Papers; Booklet distributed by the Coordinating Committee for Fundamental American Freedoms in an effort to explain the origin and purpose of the Civil Rights Act of 1963. The authors argue that the legislation would affect banks, agriculture, various businesses and professional services, education and voting. Also discusses the effects of the Act on discrimination in employment, Presidential and administrative powers, and home ownership. The Civil Rights Act of 1963 is criticized for violating the United States Constitution, destroying states' and citizens' rights, and disrupting the system of checks and balances. The authors conclude with suggestions for means to protest this piece of legislation.
