John Lewis Fellowship Presentations

In 2016, Humanity in Action published a collection of reflections written by the 2016 John Lewis Fellows. In the essays, the Fellows write about their experiences in the John Lewis program, delving into personal aspects of their own identities – such as national, ethnic, gender, racial, or religious – and reveal ways in which participation in the program has shaped their personal outlooks and perspectives on democracy and diversity. In the essays, the John Lewis Fellows also provide intellectual and personal responses – reactions and aspirations – in regard to the subjects and speakers presented throughout the program.

These essays focus on the exploration of Altanta's history and contemporary social justice issues prevalent in pluralistic societies. These compositions were a requisite component for competion of the 2016 John Lewis Fellowship. Read the 2016 essays here
