President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act into law in 1968, following a prolonged legislative battle and on the heels of the tragic assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Act extended the basic discrimination protections within the 1964 Civil Rights Act into the housing market. It explicitly prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex – and, following amendments in 1988 – familial status and disability. The Act also protects specific types of real estate activity from discrimination, primarily aspects of the sale, rental and financing of dwellings.
