BHM Series #17: Sharing Congressman John Lewis’ Message of Hope

(This is the seventeenth in a series of posts devoted to sharing the rich history of African-Americans. To see more posts in this series, click here.)
With all the marching going on lately, I have been reminded that last summer I had the amazing opportunity to see Representative John Lewis speak at the Museum of African Diaspora (MoAD). He was there to promote a graphic novel about his life titled March. His speech was nothing short of inspiring.
John Lewis’ Message of Hope: Getting into #GoodTrouble
The days ahead may often seem dark at times. When you are feeling despair about the road ahead, get inspired by the words and life of Congressman John Lewis.
When we see something thats not right, not fair, or not just, we have a moral obligation to speak up and speak out to do something about it
