Obama and three American ex-presidents celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act in the USA

The president of the United States Barack Obama and ex-presidents Jimmy carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush pay tribute this week in Austin (Texas) to the fifty years of the national civil rights act.

This text ended officially with the discrimination in the USA, promoting racial equality.

Promulgated and signed on the 2nd of July 1964 by Lyndon B. Johnson, democratic president back then, from this Tuesday 8th and until next Thursday the 10th, political leaders, university experts and community leaders will talk about the historic law and about current challenges, precisely in the Johnson Presidential Library in Austin.

Lyndon B. Johnson was the vice-president when John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas (Texas),in November 1963. He took the oath on the presidential plane before flying back to Washington, after the tragedy.

Johnson stood out because of his fight against poverty and racial inequality and because of his improvements in social communication and environmental protection.

During his stay in the Oval Office, the American involvement in the Vietnam War was also increased.

The Civil Rights Act, which turns half a century this year, forbade discrimination due to race, skin color, religion, gender or nationality.
