(Austin, TX) -- President Obama believes the struggle for civil rights is not over. He told a summit at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin today that people can't get complacent because history can travel backwards and sideways. Obama said he believes people need to nurture their rights and keep the civil rights gains secured through struggle, discipline, persistence and faith. He's worried people forget how hard it was to get the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed. The President adds America has to keep progressing, no matter how often they get challenged or have flawed leaders.
