Tag: Representative John Lewis
Humanity in Action deeply mourns the death of Representative John Lewis who imparted inspiration, wisdom, moral leadership and courage for so many throughout the United States and the world. For six years, the Atlanta-based annual John Lewis Fellowship followed his exhortations and mandate to study, understand and promote social justice. The relationship between Humanity in Action and the Congressman began through an Action Project many years ago. A Senior Fellow who was at Davidson College asked John Lewis to spend a day speaking to the students. Lewis graciously accepted the invite. Speaking one on one and then to hundreds of students, from morning through the evening, he mesmerized the campus. When Humanity in Action decided to establish a program in the South, Atlanta was the city of choice. We sought to honor John Lewis, who was so deeply honored in the city he represented, with the work of the new Fellowship. He agreed to let us name the Fellowship in tribute to his work.
