WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is remembering late congresswoman Lindy Boggs as a champion of civil rights and women's rights.

Boggs represented her Louisiana district for nearly 18 years in the House. She died Saturday at her home in suburban Washington at the age of 97.

In a statement Saturday night, Obama says Boggs' legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.
