What terrible news….
What a great man.
I have posted a lot about his work over the years:
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. #goodtrouble

John Lewis’ speeches – from the March on Washington to his last moment in Selma – chronicle his long fight for racial justice in America. https://t.co/EgGb9z4Z8j
