Drawing Lines: The Black American Experience (Con. John Lewis, D-GA)

The Honorable John Lewis, U.S. Representative of the 5th Congressional District of Georgia and a long-standing leader of civil and human rights, will discuss the need for civic engagement. Often called "one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced," Congressman Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls "The Beloved Community" in America. Representative Lewis has served as U.S. Representative since he was elected to Congress in November 1986. Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis.
