John Lewis - In Memoriam

Last week, Congressman John Lewis, one of the last surviving trailblazers of the civil rights movement, died at age 80.  At age 23, Lewis was the youngest person to address the great March on Washington in 1963.  Two years later, he was brutally beaten during the march for voting rights in Selma, Alabama, suffering a fractured skull.  At Lewis’ last appearance commemorating that event, he said, “We were beaten, we were tear-gassed. I thought I was going to die on this bridge.”  But Lewis did not die on that bridge and was eventually elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served with distinction for 30 years.  In the wake of the mass shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in 2016, Lewis led a sit-in on the floor of the House to force action on gun violence.
