Season 6 Episode 608
Aired on 01/15/2017 | CC tv-pg
For decades, John Lewis, who represents Georgia's 5th District in the United States House of Representatives, has been a fixture in the ongoing fight for equality and social justice. He's considered a hero of the civil rights movement, determined to make the world better for future generations—and the work is far from done, Rep. Lewis asserts.

"There are forces that want to take us back to another place," he says. "The fight is not over. We have to continue to fight. And sometimes you have to fight some of the old battles over and over again for the next generation, for generations yet unborn. You, too, can make a contribution, and you must."
