The Civil Rights Act of 1968, known as the Fair Housing Act, was passed as a follow-up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. An 1868 Civil Rights Act did prohibit discrimination in housing but did not provide for federal enforcement. The '68 act prohibited discrimination of the sale, rental, and finance of housing based on race, religion, or national origin.
