Gone at the age of 80, called the Conscience of Congress, a voice for equality, a voice for civil rights, John Lewis left his earthly walk on July 17, 2020. "As the only original speaker in the March on Washington who would live to see the historical moment of Barack Obama becoming the first Black President, Lewis was on stage during Obama’s inauguration on January 20, 2009 – five days after what would have been Martin Luther King’s eightieth birthday."

We lost two civil rights icons this past Friday, Congressman John Lewis and Rev. C. T. Nance, a close adviser to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. As we honor their memories, knowing slightly more about Congressman Lewis because of his public persona, these leaders as did Dr. King ...didn't let nobody turn them around from their stance, from their beliefs, and from their fight for equality!

As you read below, their marks in history left an indelible impression that can't ever be erased.
