Final Jeopardy Explanation – Wednesday, March 1 2023

As a result of civil rights violations committed against Native Americans during the Reconstruction era, the United States passed the Civil Rights Act of 1875. The 43rd United States Congress passed the bill, and Ulysses S. Grant, the country’s president, signed it into law on March 1st, 1875. The law prohibits exclusion from jury duty and guarantees equality of treatment in public spaces and on public transportation in order to “protect all people in their civil and legal rights.”

The bill was drafted in early 1870 by United States Senator Charles Sumner, a Radical Republican in the Senate, with the assistance of John Mercer Langston, a prominent African American who founded Howard University’s law department.

The Supreme Court declared the public accommodations parts of the act unconstitutional in the Civil Rights Cases in 1883, holding that the Equal Protection Clause did not grant Congress the authority to regulate private individuals or corporations. In the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968, which both referenced the Commerce Clause as the basis for Congress’s authority to regulate private actors, portions of the Civil Rights Act of 1875 were later re-adopted.
