Video: 'All the Way' cast read Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark piece of legislation signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on July 2, 1964, that prohibited discrimination in public places, provided for the integration of schools and other public facilities, and made employment discrimination illegal. This document was the most sweeping civil rights legislation since Reconstruction.

All the Way, the Tony-winning Best New Play by Robert Schenkkan, is a compelling account of how Johnson worked with Martin Luther King Jr. to push that landmark legislation through a recalcitrant Congress.

The DCPA Theatre Company is presenting the regional premiere of All the Way from Jan. 29-Feb 28. Cast members recently took time to record a segment from the historic legislation for the video above.
