Congressman John Lewis

In Memory of the Honorable John Lewis

"Learn to do good. Make justice your aim." (Isaiah 1:17)



With the passing of our beloved congressman, the Honorable John Lewis, we continue to reflect on his words and example. On June 15, 2018, Congressman John Lewis gave the commencement address at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). He invited the graduates to advance science, advocate for the marginalized, understand history, promote peace, care for the planet, and get in good trouble. His instruction is for all of us.

As we remember the legacy of Congressman John Lewis, the song "Glory" speaks the sentiments of our hearts. "Glory" is the theme song of Ava DuVernay's Selma (2014). John Lewis was played by Stephan James. "Glory" won Best Original Song at the 2015 Academy Awards.
