A Tribute to John Lewis

MILWAUKEE—Tonight at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, Democrats paid tribute to their colleague, their hero, their friend: the late Congressman John Lewis.

In a new video directed by documentary filmmaker Dawn Porter, we hear from some of the women and men who knew firsthand the power of John Lewis’ spirit, humility, and unrivaled courage. We follow his story from the Edmund Pettus Bridge to the halls of Congress, where he inspired his fellow Americans to demand more from themselves and from our country. As we strive to build a more just society in the years ahead, we follow in John Lewis’ footsteps.
