On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which was meant as a follow-up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The 1968 act expanded on previous acts and prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, or sex. The act was amended under Title VIII of the Act in 1968 to prohibit discrimination based on disability and familial status.
The enactment of the federal Fair Housing Act on April 11, 1968 came only after a long and difficult journey. However, when Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson utilized this national tragedy to urge for the bill's speedy Congressional approval. Since the 1966 open housing marches in Chicago, Dr. King's name had been closely associated with the fair housing legislation. President Johnson viewed the Act as a fitting memorial to the man's life work, and wished to have the Act passed prior to Dr. King's funeral in Atlanta.
Equal access to rental housing and homeownership opportunities is the cornerstone of this nation’s federal housing policy. Landlords, lenders, sellers or any housing provider who refuse to rent , finance, or sell any dwelling to people based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or familial status are violating the federal law, and HUD will vigorously pursue them. Housing discrimination is not only illegal, it contradicts in every way the principals of freedom and opportunity we treasure as Americans. The Department of HUD is committed to ensuring that everyone is treated equally when searching for a place to call home.
