Civil Rights

President Johnson signs the Civl Rights Act

“The greatness of the United States of America has always been defined by its ability to overcome those societal practices that have deviated from our founding principles. So – like those most patriotic Americans did some six decades past – let us seize the moment before us. Let us make our nation even greater than it is today. Let us work, just as those we honor tonight once did, in common cause. Let us come together once again – with open hearts and outstretched hands – to keep faith in the ideals that have made our nation not only powerful but good. And let us renew our commitment to the ongoing struggle for opportunity and justice for all.” -- Attorney General Eric Holder at the Brown Foundation’s 57th Anniversary Commemoration of Brown v. Board of Education, May 17, 2011
