US President Barack Obama walks before departing from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, April 9, 2014Barack Obama may finally lay to rest unflattering comparisons with Lyndon Johnson on Thursday, 50 years after his towering predecessor forced the Civil Rights Act, which outlawed racial discrimination, into law. America’s first black president will make a keynote address at the Johnson library in Texas at a civil rights summit also drawing former leaders Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
