Why was there a need for Congress to pass The Civil Rights Act of 1968, four years after passing The Civil Rights Act of 1964?
Congress had neglected to provide proper protection for Latinos and other ethnic minorities.
African Americans were still experiencing lynching and the 1968 Act finally outlawed the practice.
African Americans were still experiencing discrimination in housing by being denied rental properties and mortgages.
African Americans were still experiencing discrimination in education because no one was enforcing the 1954 Brown ruling..
The 1968 Act included more specific language about the treatment of African-Americans and other racial minorities by law enforcement officers.
