U.S. Representative John Lewis, Georgia, February 21, 1940–July 17, 2020

He has fought the good fight, he has finished the race, he has kept the faith.

For those of you who missed it, I reviewed the film, Good Trouble,  focusing on John Lewis on July 12. It is available to stream in the United States. I am not sure of its availability outside my country. An inspiring man who fought for justice his whole life, he succumbed to pancreatic cancer diagnosed in December, 2019.

  1. John Lewis was a great man who wasn’t afraid of standing up for what was right, even if it meant going to jail.
