Bill of the Century: The Civil Rights Act of 1964
New York Times editor Clay Risen discussed his newest book, The Bill of the Century: The Epic Battle for the Civil Rights Act, at the National Constitution Center. The book is an in-depth, behind-the-scenes account of the unsung congressional and White House heroes who helped the Civil Rights Act become the law of the land.
A book sale and signing followed the program.
This program was part of the National Constitution Center’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
