Correct answer: (B)
Title VII was part of the original Civil Rights Act of 1964. On June 19, 1963, President John F. Kennedy sent comprehensive civil rights legislation to Congress. Shortly after President Kennedy’s assassination, President Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This law was intended to address, and curb, societal beliefs that people are different because of physical characteristics. The anti-employment discrimination provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 were included in Title VII of that legislation.
