Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States that outlawed major forms of discrimination against African Americans and women, including racial segregation. It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public ("public accommodations"). Powers given to enforce the act were initially weak, but were supplemented during later years.

Northern Ireland Civil Rights Movement

From the early 60’s a number of initiatives had emerged which challenged inequality and discrimination in Northern Ireland. For example, in the mid ‘60s the Campaign for Social Justice (CSJ) was founded by the McCluskeys, two doctors with a background in housing activism. They had been involved in the Homeless Citizens League, an organisation which came about after some Catholic women occupied disused social housing.
