Black Americans have made significant advancements in the 60 years since the passage of the Civil Rights Act, but economic, educational and voting rights disparities persist, according to a report by the National Urban League on the State of Black America.

“This year marks the 60th anniversary of that landmark legislation, but the journey toward racial justice in the United States is older than the nation itself, and nowhere near complete,” wrote Marc A. Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League.

“In the wake of the uprising triggered by George Floyd’s murder in 2020, the nation now finds itself swept into a backlash that presents the gravest threat to the Civil Rights Act in its relatively short history,” he added.
