Background:

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, provides that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, and national origin be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.  The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 amended the Title VI to specify that entire institutions receiving Federal funds – whether schools and colleges, government entities, or private employers – must comply with Federal civil rights laws, rather than just the particular programs or activities that receive funds.
