To mark the passing of Civil Rights icon John Lewis, here’s a rare speech by the U.S. Representative of the 5th Congressional District of Georgia at the Cooper Union in New York City in 2017.  He discusses his early life leading to his joining the Civil Rights Movement and the work yet to be done. He then sits down for a conversation with Laura Sparks, president of Cooper Union. His talk starts at the 9:56 mark.
