GRITtv: John Lewis: Conscience of the Congress

Representative John Lewis told us on GRITtv about his time leading civil rights marches and fighting for justice alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. From leading marches to making impassioned speeches in front of Congress, calling on his colleagues to make the right choices on the Iraq war and continuing to fight for the rights of those often forgotten, Lewis is honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom today, and we honor him as well with some of his most memorable speeches.
