Segregation in America was abolished in 1964, when the Civil Rights Act was passed by Congress. This was only possible due to the fact that African-Americans and Whites worked together to end it. The treatment of African-Americans was very discriminatory and racist by the white race. The passing of the Civil Rights Act in America was a monumentous moment for the country and the world. This gallery will show both the lives of segregated African-Americans and African-Americans working peacefully alongside whites to end inequality.
