The First Equal Rights Act was Signed Today

Did you know the Alaska Equal Rights Act of 1945, the first anti-discrimination law in the United States, was signed into law today?

You do now! The law made it illegal to discriminate based on race, and came into being after Alaskan natives fought against segregation, which often forced them to abandon their culture. It was signed February 16th, 1945 and dismantled Jim Crow laws in Alaska.
