Final Jeopardy Explanation – Friday, June 14 2024

Hobart Taylor Jr., while helping to draft an executive order in 1961, chose the alliterative phrase “affirmative action” instead of using the word “positive.” This decision marked a significant moment in American history as it introduced the term “affirmative action” into the civil rights lexicon. The executive order, signed by President John F. Kennedy, was aimed at eliminating discrimination in hiring practices among government contractors and required that they take “affirmative action” to ensure that hiring and employment practices were free of racial bias. This phrase has since become central to discussions and policies regarding civil rights, employment, and education, shaping efforts to promote equality and diversity within the United States.
