MLK Day

  • Posted on Jan 4, 2012
    At age 17, Congressman John Lewis was so inspired by Dr. King that he wrote a letter to King asking to meet him. Dr. King wrote back and sent Lewis a round-trip Greyhound bus ticket to meet with him. Lewis joined Dr. King and would go on to organize sit-in demonstrations at segregated lunch counters, serve as an architect of and a keynote speaker at the historic March on Washington, and march with protestors across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama.
