When Congressman John Lewis died in the summer of 2020, he left us a message: "Together, you can redeem the soul of our nation." His OpEd was publishing in The New York Times on the day of his funeral. The congressman also left behind an amazing documentary chronicling his life's work in the cause of human rights.
