Courageous Civil Rights Leader, Rep. John Lewis has died and left us with an opened path and a challenge. Born a sharecropper, Lewis marched with Martin Luther King in a non-violent protest and was beaten by police – but this did not stop him. Lewis went on to become a Democratic Congressman in Georgia, serving 17 terms and earning a reputation as a bold, persistent and compassionate Civil Rights activist. His tireless, non-violent efforts helped open the path to progress and they continue to challenge us to remember the long game and to steel ourselves with patience and persistence in the fight for justice in America. Tune in to “In the Frequency of Hope at 7PM on Monday July 20 to learn more and to celebrate this great American leader.
