The Thomas Jefferson Dinner

Celebrating The Civil Rights Act of 1964

The ninth annual Thomas Jefferson Dinner celebrates the 50th anniversary of an important milestone in the struggle for justice and equality in America. On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed major forms of discrimination against racial, ethnic, national and religious minorities, and women. It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public.
