Calls For Justice Remembered As Rep. John Lewis’s Body Crosses Bridge In Selma For Last Time

As a young man, he stood up for what was right, against all evil, and in that he was arrested and beaten multiple times by a racist governing body who didn’t want the progression of his people. One of the most infamous of those times was when he and many others were beaten on the Edmond PettUs Bridge in Selma, Alabama.

This was where the late representative crossed once again for a final time, but this time in death, drawn by horse and carriage on Sunday, July 26, 2020.

John Lewis, even after his death, will go on to be remembered in books such as – His Truth Is Marching On – where he wrote the foreword, but also in his own authored books such as ACROSS THAT BRIDGE and WALKING WITH THE WIND.
