The public is paying respects to long-time Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, as his body lies in state at the U. S. Capitol Rotunda for a second day. The 80-year-old Lewis died last week from pancreatic cancer. His funeral is Thursday in Atlanta.
Known as the moral conscience of Congress during his 33 years in office, Lewis’ work as a Civil Rights activist not only touched the nation but the North and South Carolina region as well. WBTV reporter Steve Crump details that work in a documentary, "John Lewis—Reflections of a Sit-In Pioneer." Crump says Lewis gives the sit-ins in 1960 in Greensboro a lot of credit for the successful sit-in movement he was a major part of that year in Nashville, Tennessee.
