On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
A comic book once inspired Congressman John Lewis to learn about the early days of the civil rights movement and engage in activism himself. Now, a new generation of readers is learning about civil rights history through Lewis’ own comics series. We share an excerpt of a recent conversation Kojo had with Lewis and his collaborator on the “March” series with a group of young readers at the Library of Congress.
- Andrew Aydin Digital Director and Policy Advisor to Rep. John Lewis; Co-Author, "March"; @andrewaydin
- John Lewis Member, U.S. House of Representatives (D- GA); @repjohnlewis
