The 1964 Civil Rights Act, enacted on July 2nd of that year, represented an attempt by the federal government to deal with unlawful discrimination in many fields of endeavor, including housing, employment, public accommodations and facilities, federally assisted and federally funded programs, voting rights, etc. . . Title VII of that Act is specifically concerned with equal employment opportunity and creates the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to carry out the functions of the law.
