In High School Civics, my teacher explained that Civil Liberties are things you have freedom *from*, such as the freedom from illegal search and seizures, the fredom from making self-incriminating, etc. Civil Rights are things you have the right *to*, such as the right to free speech, the right to travel between states freely, etc. So for example, the gov't wiretapping scandal recently violates your Civil Liberties, while being arrested without a warrant or trial is a violation of your Civil Rights.
