Remembering Rep. John Lewis, Civil Rights Leader And 'The Conscience Of Congress'

We look back on the life of John Lewis, the civil rights icon and congressman who dedicated himself to the fight for racial equality. From his emergence on the national stage during the March on Washington in 1963 to his decades as a symbol of moral authority on Capitol Hill, we remember the man and his legacy of public service. Rep. James Clyburn, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., Errin Haines and Bernard Lafayette join Meghna Chakrabarti.
