A Powerful Moment in History

Yesterday, 50 years after President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law, President Obama spoke at the LBJ Presidential Library to honor the work and legacy of our nation's 36th president:

The story of America is a story of progress.  However slow, however incomplete, however harshly challenged at each point on our journey, however flawed our leaders, however many times we have to take a quarter of a loaf or half a loaf -- the story of America is a story of progress.  And that's true because of men like President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Watch President Obama's moving, personal speech on President Johnson's legacy.
