A Solution
  • Major Features of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Title IBarred unequal application of voter
    registration requirements, but did not abolish
    literacy tests sometimes used to disqualify
    African Americans and poor white voters.
  • Title IIOutlawed discrimination in hotels,
    motels, restaurants, theaters, and all other
    public accommodations engaged in interstate
    commerce exempted private clubs without defining
    "private," thereby allowing a loophole.
  • Title IIIEncouraged the desegregation of public
    schools and authorized the U. S. Attorney General
    to file suits to force desegregation, but did not
    authorize busing as a means to overcome
    segregation based on residence.
  • Title IVAuthorized but did not require
    withdrawal of federal funds from programs which
    practiced discrimination.
  • Title VOutlawed discrimination in employment in
    any business exceeding twenty five people and
    creates an Equal Employment Opportunities
    Commission to review complaints, although it
    lacked meaningful enforcement powers.
