Virtual: JON MEACHAM, His Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope

Date: September 2, 2020
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An intimate and revealing portrait of civil rights icon and longtime U.S.
Congressman John Lewis, linking his life to the painful quest for justice in
America from the 1950s to the present—by Pulitzer Prize–winning author
Jon Meacham. John Lewis, who at age twenty-five marched in Selma,
Alabama, and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, is a visionary
and a man of faith. Drawing on decades of wide-ranging interviews with
Lewis, Jon Meacham writes of how this great-grandson of a slave and
son of an Alabama tenant farmer was inspired by the Bible and his teachers
in nonviolence, Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King, Jr., to
put his life on the line in the service of what Abraham Lincoln called “the
better angels of our nature.” Jon will be in conversation with Dr. Valerie
Montgomery Rice, Dean, Morehouse School of Medicine.
