John Lewis (February 21, 1940—July 17, 2020) was an American politician and civil rights leader who served as a U.S.A. consultant for the 5th Congressional District in Georgia from 1987 till he died in 2020. During the 1960s, Lewis was a University student and served as chairman of the student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Working first with other University students and later with outstanding civil rights leaders, Lewis helped to quit segregation and discrimination and racial injustice during the Civil Rights movement. He spoke against the unjust killing of Mr. George Floyd and in 2017 he boycotted Mr. Trump’s inauguration, questioning the legitimacy of his presidency due to proof that Russia had meddled in the 2016 election on Mr. Trump’s behalf. Mr. Lewis was arrested 40 times from 1960 to 1966. He was repeatedly beaten by Southern policemen and freelance hoodlums. During the Freedom Rides in 1961, he was left unconscious in a pool of his own blood outside the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Montgomery, Ala., after he and others were attacked by hundreds of white people. He spent countless days and nights in county jails and 31 days in Mississippi’s notoriously brutal Parchman Penitentiary.
