Efforts to to honor the late Maryland Congressman John Lewis continue this week in Washington, DC. Over the weekend, a motorcade carried Lewis traveled through Troy and Selma, Alabama, reviewing his life as “The Boy from Troy.” A horse drawn carriage carried Lewis across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, where over 57 years ago his head was cracked by a police officer while he marched for voting rights.
Today and tomorrow, the “Conscience of Congress” will lie in state at the top of the east front steps of the US Capitol for public viewing. Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser requires masks to enter.
