Title IX civil rights legislation

I need to write about three civil rights, but I am requesting this problem for ONE so I have a foundation to go off of. Please identify and describe ONE "piece" of Federal Civil Rights legislation and discuss the implications of each on cultural diversity. Please discuss the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ( Outlawed segregation in schools and business)

Secondly, identify and describe three Federal judicial rulings involving Civil Rights and discuss the implications of each on cultural diversity.

Please do not copy the statues and rulings, ..I need to hear from a different perspective.

This is the requested format if possible:

Federal Civil Rights Legislation
-Tital of Statute
-Explanation of the law
-Implications on Cultural Diversity

Federal Judicial Rulings
-Ruling Citation
-Explanation of the ruling
-Implications on cultural diversity

This needs to be approx. 700-800 words.

Thank you so much for your help.
