LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder says that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a landmark piece of legislation and that its tremendous impact is still felt today.

"With the stroke of a pen, President Johnson ended segregation in schools, at the workplace, and at the lunch counter," says Snyder. "Though more work had to be done to enforce its guarantees, the Civil Rights Act was an important step to ensuring our nation's promise of equal rights protection under the law."

Snyder mentioned numerous civil rights activists from Michigan like Rosa Parks and John Conyers among others who he says helped lead the nation into a new era of equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
