Student activist Jonathan Butler and Congressman John Lewis sit down to discuss the Eyes on the Prize series and the Civil Rights movement in this video from Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now. Lewis reflects on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery protest march. Shortly after the march began, Alabama State troopers met the marchers with violence as they crossed Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge. Lewis also describes experiences from his childhood and youth, when he began to question segregation and other inequalities, and first got involved in nonviolent direct action. Lewis offers this advice for today’s student activists: study the lessons of the early Civil Rights movement and speak out whenever you see injustice. This resource is part of the Civil Rights: Then and Now collection.
