Remembering John Lewis and his Fight for Civil Rights

John Lewis was a leader in the fight for civil rights at a young age. He was a founder of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, a platform for younger black activists in the Civil Rights movement.  At 23, he was the youngest speaker at the famous March on Washington.

John Lewis faced violence and brutality from police on multiple occasions. This picture was taken right before state troopers beat him and gassed him on the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, Alabama. However, he would continue for the rest of his life, as he summed up in one of his his most famost quote:

"Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul od America."

He was known by his colleagues as the "conscience of congress" where he continued to fight for Civil Rights and speak out against issues ranging from affordable healthcare, to safety, to the formation of the Smithsonian's African American history museum.
