9:02 pm
. bodies been taken across that bridge in selma one last time it's part of 6 days of ceremonies to remember the 80 year old who died after battling pancreatic cancer lewis was one of the so-called big 6 of the civil rights movement led by luther king jr he helped to organize the march on washington where king delivered his historic i have a dream speech lewis was elected to the u.s. house of representatives in 1986 the democratic congressman served right up until he died 9 days ago i'll just sirus and he gallagher has been watching the memorial from miami in florida he's with us now live and he took us through the significance of this moment in selma today. well this is a significant moment for a man who was considered a civil rights icon more accurately a civil rights giant he passed peacefully over the edmund pettus bridge but that wasn't the scene 55 years ago in
9:03 pm
a day that came to be known as bloody sunday when john lewis and other people back ling for the right for all african-americans to get the vote cross that bridge they were bent by alabama's state troopers under the orders of a racist governor who ordered them to stop them at any cost john lewis himself took a billy club to the head one of 40 times that he was arrested in his career and as someone who was fighting for civil rights that day that bloody sunday really changed the mood of the united states that pictures were broadcast across the country the still pictures were seen in newspapers everywhere and it really solidified and intensified that fight for the voting rights act which was then passed john lewis went on to serve in the congress he was often called the conscious of the u.s. congress a man who spent his entire time in political office fighting for those less fortunate than themselves not just african-americans he also fought for native american
9:04 pm
voting rights he strongly represented him was a voice for the l.g.b. t.q. community and somebody i think whose work who literally spilt blood for the causes he fought 'd for was respected by all both republicans and democrats he was no fan of president trump he didn't attend his inauguration but i think he will be seen as somebody who whose whose words among many will be remembered by generations to come he said look freedom isn't something that it's given it is something that is fought for and when you think about the voting rights act this wasn't something voluntarily written up by politicians it wasn't voluntarily passed in the congress it was forceful by people like john lewis who in fact spoke the. same day in washington d.c. but dr martin luther king jr did it with his very famous i have a dream speech i was there as an added gallagher reporting live from miami florida but he thanks andy that's bringing us political analyst eric ham from washington
9:05 pm
d.c. eric what are your thoughts on the significance of this moment and so much of a following the policy of the last civil rights icon if you like of his generation sure i mean while we are certainly memorializing this civil rights icon john lewis and doing so in the fashion that he should certainly be awarded we cannot forget that there are so many protests so many demonstrations that are taking place today and john lewis is the the bearer of the flag bearer of which he has handed this but on off to now a many of these demonstrators in protest that we are seeing in fact if you just go back just a few years ago when john lewis was still marching steel advocating for rights i mean he led a sit in in the u.s. congress on the chamber floor and it was so of back the house republicans will were in charge at that time actually ordered c.-span to actually turn off the cameras so
9:06 pm
americans would not see it so clearly what we are seeing here is a new generation of activists shaping and pushing it agitating for civil rights and social justice for all americans and that think that the moniker of john lewis to to to get in trouble necessary trouble good trouble we are seeing that take place today and clearly john lewis is actions and john lewis is words continue to resonate for many americans today so as far as i'm concerned that there is a lie there's there's a cause the cause for optimism an end in sight to the lifelong fight of john this. i don't know if i'm willing to go that far but i do believe what we are seeing is we're seeing that baton being passed on john lewis as you said one of the big 6 who were in leading and fighting for civil rights and human rights for americans back
9:07 pm
in the sixty's and has continued to do so remember he was seen and often referred to as the conscious of the congress and so i think what we're saying is john lewis not only the man not only memorializing his actions of 60 years ago but also we're seeing them play out today with so many people continuing to fight because again americans still believe that that the united states has not lived up to its ideals in fact when you look at what took place with george floyd more than 3 months ago and americans continuing to protest and demonstrate across this country in fact protests are continuing in seattle portland colorado other cities across the country and many there are there there's there there were their willingness to lay down their lives to what john lewis did so young an age and what he contained to do even until the day to what extent to day events in selma old as he is a go. become
9:08 pm
a burden if you like the beginning of his his life's work a responsibility that that he would shoulder for the rest of his days. sure i mean when you when you think about it we're talking about a very young man only in his early twenty's laying his life on the line i mean that is clearly a fork in a role 'd that many young people frankly don't have to make that decision today many young people are choosing to to go to college and they have that right where is john lewis as you mentioned was arrested multiple times numerous top arms and so clearly you know there was so much danger so much threat around his life but he continued to lay his life on the line for what he believed in so that people today can experience the ability to walk to breathe which we're still seeing many millions of americans fight for across this country eric really good to talk to you again many thanks to derrick ound there live in washington the u.s.
