Remembering John Lewis Live

Watch live coverage as the country bids a final farewell to civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis, who died at age 80 from complications of pancreatic cancer.

The late Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., has been honored by the nation through memorial celebrations all week, but Lewis himself has one final message in the form of a letter to the nation that was published by The New York Times Thursday morning.

The letter, which can be read in full here, contains a message of hope for the future, as Lewis said he was inspired by those who have stood up for equality after the death of George Floyd on May 25 while in the custody of Minneapolis police.
