TITLE VI OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964
42 U.S.C. § 2000D ET SEQ.
OVERVIEW OF TITLE VI OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964
Title VI, 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq., was enacted as part of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. As President John F. Kennedy said in 1963:
Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers of all races [colors, and national origins] contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes or results in racial [color or national origin] discrimination.
