As the 50th anniversary approaches of enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, an American Forum special mini-documentary featuring leading scholars from around the US examines how the law ending racial segregation also radically opened new opportunities for women, gays and lesbians, Native Americans, and other ethnicities. The episode will also explore Supreme Court decisions suggesting trouble ahead for the US law viewed as the most historic of the 20th century. (This episode also kicks off a special series of rebroadcasts during summer 2014 marking the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer and the peak of the Civil Rights Movement.)
