Presidents and many others gather in Austin this week for a summit focused on Lyndon B. Johnson and the landmark civil-rights laws he ushered into place including the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

In our four years in action, we’ve fact-checked some claims about your rights.

They’re stacked to the right--alongside fact checks mentioning Johnson or the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Should President Barack Obama or any of his predecessors make a curious claim at the LBJ Civil Rights Summit that bears checking, we’re eager to hear about it.
