    Abstract:
    It is often stated that the Fair Housing Act of 1968, the last of the great civil rights laws from the 1960s, was "fast-tracked" after the brutal murder of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968.1 The late Massachusetts Senator, Edward Kennedy, who was a senator at the time, wrote the following of the law's passage: On April 4, 1968, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., was tragically assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, and riots broke out in cities across the country, including Washington. On April 10, while the city was still in crisis, the House approved the Senate version of the fair housing bill and sent it to the White House, where President Johnson signed it into law on April 11.2
