How the SNCC Made John Lewis: A Discussion with Civil Rights Veterans
John Lewis—civil rights activist and conscience of the Congress—passed away on July 17, 2020. For all of Representative Lewis’ experiences, perhaps none shaped his life more than his service with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, or SNCC. Judy Richardson and Betty Robinson—two veterans of SNCC—will reflect on their colleague and their shared struggle for justice and equality from the 1960s to today.
