Description

The Civil Rights Act of 1960 gave free education to children of members of armed forces, however it did not address the segregated school system prevalent across the country. The Civil Rights Act of 1960 also produced penalties for any person trying to keep another from voting or registering to vote. Unfortunately, the Civil Rights Act of 1960 still did little in the way of giving African Americans and Mexican American voting privileges and allowed schools to remain segregated across the nation.
