From the Paper:

"In his early career, Ronald Reagan opposed several important pieces of civil rights legislation, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and as Governor of California, he opposed various fair housing legislative campaigns. However, Reagan subsequently supported later important versions or extensions of those civil rights acts and fair housing laws. In 1988, as President, he vetoed the Civil Rights Restoration Act and also opposed the proposal of Martin Luther King Day as a federal holiday. Reagan also negotiated with South Africa despite its Apartheid policies (Reeves, 2005)."
