May we continue to get into "good trouble." Rest in Power and Peace, Rep. John Lewis.

May we continue to get into "good trouble." Rest in Power and Peace, Rep. John Lewis.

Rep. John Lewis, who died Friday at age 80, was the youngest and last survivor of the Big Six civil rights activists who organized the 1963 March on Washington, and spoke shortly before the group’s leader, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., gave his “I Have a Dream” speech to a vast sea of people.⁣

If that speech marked a turning point in the civil rights era — or at least the most famous moment — the struggle was far from over. Two more hard years passed before truncheon-wielding state troopers beat Lewis bloody and fractured his skull as he led 600 protesters over Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge.⁣

That bridge became a touchstone in Lewis’ life. He returned there often during his decades in Congress representing the Atlanta area, bringing lawmakers from both parties to see where “Bloody Sunday” went down.⁣

More brutality would loom in his life's last chapter. He wept watching the video of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police in Minnesota. “I kept saying to myself: How many more? How many young Black men will be murdered?” he said last month.⁣

Yet he declared, or at least dared to hope: “We’re one people, we’re one family. We all live in the same house, not just the American house but the world house.”⁣

Lewis was a guiding voice for many. To honor his legacy, here are some of his powerful quotes. More on Lewis' life and legacy 👉 https://politi.co/30tGAsu

Presbyterian Church Facing Racism

We are still missing hosting all our guests here in D.C. this summer, but would like to continue supporting and encouraging you all in your ongoing social justice and peace making efforts, no matter where you are.

We invite you to continue in anti-racism work and explore PC(USA)'s extensive compilation of resources here at facing-racism.pcusa.org.

Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity. It is the rejection of the other, which is entirely contrary to the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. Racism is a lie about our fellow human beings, for it says that some are less than others. Because of our biblical understanding of who....
