On July 2, 1964, exactly 50 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the historic Civil Rights Act.  The legislation outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender or national origin.  It also ended discriminatory application of voter registration requirements as well as racial segregation in schools as well as in the workplace.

This landmark legislation was viewed as the culmination of the work of the civil rights movement.  We are honored to have with us on this historic anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act,  Mr. Jesse Epps, one of Dr. Martin Luther King's closest friends and advisors.  Mr. Epps was with Dr. King on the day of his assassination.

It is the life mission of Jesse Epps to forward the work of Dr. King.  He was a major part of the civil rights movement back then, and now, Jesse Epps is making history with the Rebirth of America  http://americarebirth.org and Neighbors Uniting American Families. http://nuafonline.org  He will share about that and how you can play a role.

We have come a long way with Civil Rights.  The problem is that we still have a very long way to go!
