July 2nd is the 50th anniversary of the signing of The Civil Rights Act of 1964.
This sweeping piece of legislation changed many American’s lives. It outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin allowing access to jobs, housing, education, strengthening voting rights, and prohibiting discrimination in public schools.
John F Kennedy introduced the bill in 1963; but when he was shot, everyone thought the fight for civil rights died with him. No one believed President Johnson would champion this cause and put his political career at risk.
The venue will be Nacho Daddy at 287 Basilio Badillo in Old Town Vallarta. We'll get the party started at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, July 2, 2014.
We'll have food and drink specials, presentations and information for voter registration abroad. There is no charge to attend this event!
Come celebrate this anniversary, hear more stories of its passage and successes, and share your own. We'll also get off to a good start celebrating Independence Day!!!!!
