AUSTIN, TX – So long President Obama! On to the next stop in his lone star state tour.

President Obama has been moving around Texas going from Fort Hood to Houston, then on to the state capitol.

He bid farewell to the Bayou City on Air Force One with the first lady.

When Air Force One touched down at the capital, it was windy. Cameras caught the first lady almost pulling a Marilyn Monroe.

In Austin the first couple made it for the final day of a civil rights summit at the Lydon B. Johnson Presidential Library.

The summit commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964, which made it illegal to discriminate based on race.

Inside the library they toured the Corner Stone of Civil Rights exhibit packed with civil rights documents and historical artifacts on display inside the LBJ Library.

Speakers at this year’s summit included former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

Then, the President took to the stage for the keynote address.

The civil rights summit was a solid reminder of just how much we’ve overcome in the last 50 years.
