Atlanta – John Lewis was a great American. Time and time again he demonstrated moral and physical courage in nonviolent defiance of the white supremacist regime in the South. Throughout his long life, his commitment to full equality for all people never wavered,” said Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia. “He will always be remembered with gratitude and admiration.”
