Civil Rights Documentation Project

Legislative history junkies and those who follow legal history and its intersection with social movements may find the Civil Rights Documentation Project to be of interest.

This project discusses the legislative process involved in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The site offers a detailed monthly time line of the bill's progress from January 1963 through the law’s enactment in August 1965. Icons indicate whether a time line date focuses upon the social context or upon the legislative process. Also, the project includes names of key politicians and citations to specific bill numbers.
