Kennedy and the Civil Rights Movement Commemorative Coin

"Today, we are commited to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free."
John F. Kennedy

On June 6, 1963, President Kennedy presented anationally televised speech in response to the U.S. National Guard being sent to protect Vivian Malone and James Hood, two African-American students enrolling at the University of Alabama. In this nowhistoric address, he urged the nation to take action toward guaranteeing equal treatment of every American regardless of race. Soon after, Kennedy proposed that Congress consider civil rights legislation that would address voting rights, public accommodations, school desegregation, nondiscrimination in federally assisted programs, and more. Kennedy's proposal culminated in the Civil Rights Act of1964. Signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on July 2, 1964 - less than a year after Kennedy's assassination - the act outlawed all discriminatory employment practices based on sex or race andended segregation in public places such as swimming pools, libraries, and public schools.
