Jon Meacham in Conversation with Wes Moore: John Lewis and the Power of Hope

Jon Meacham and Wes Moore

Join Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of His Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope, for a master class on the life and legacy of civil rights icon and congressman John Lewis.

Presented on the anniversary of the historic March on Washington, Meacham draws on his decades of interviews with Lewis and a deep body of research to discuss how the great-grandson of a slave and the son of an Alabama tenant farmer grew up to become a leading voice for justice in the 20th century alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. Discuss the life of this powerful advocate for nonviolent resistance in the civil rights movement, an abiding moral compass in US Congress, and how he became an inspiration for generations of Americans fighting for a better future.
