U.S. Representative, 5th District, Georgia
For
nearly half a century, Congressman John Lewis, D-Ga., has been the
voice in Congress for the citizens of Atlanta. But Lewis is best known
as a hero of the Civil Rights Movement who valiantly fought for the
equitable treatment of his people in a hostile and racist society.

Lewis would like to see the black community return to the nonviolent
tactics that worked so well in the 1960s to bring about a significant
change in the social structure of America.


“We’re very concerned about the large number of young people,
especially young African American males, that are caught up in a cycle
of violence. We’re trying to tell people we must lay down the tools and
instruments of violence and move towards a society at peace with
itself,” says Lewis. – jason thompson
