He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John.

One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR?

And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life.

A criminal Justice system. Tortures children by putting them in solitary confinement, shackles pregnant women locks people up for doing things at two of the last three presidents admitted to do. Tim acquatic Senator Cory Booker from yesterday in Selma Alabama. The danger when we have a nation that pays teachers poverty? Wages dream is in danger when we can fund the greatest war machine on the planet earth. But when our soldiers come home, they're inadequate health care. They're over incarceration. Their mental health struggles their suicide rates speak to a poverty of priorities. The dream is in danger when it is easy for criminals to get their hands on guns because we do not pass commonsense. Gun safety laws in our country. Com-it's a dream. Let us slay him and see what becomes of his dreams. The answer to our dangerous dream the answer to the demands of the dream is called from the people of our history. The foot soldiers many of whom are in this room. The answer is that we are called to love each other again to revive civic grace. So have a more courageous empathy in this country. The answer is understand that patriotism is love of country, and you cannot love your country unless you love your fellow countrymen and women. We now are called understand that the cords spiritual courts at tires together or stronger than those lines that divide us to remember the lessons of our lives. I said that I was here directly because of those marchers. Well, this is what I mean. I went to go back when I was a Senator and find those people that help my family move into a whole I found the head of the fair housing council easily from the nineteen sixties because she's still headed the fair housing council. Now, she's ninety two years old. And now she doesn't represent black families in northern New Jersey. She represents same sex couples who represents muslim-americans she represents Americans with disabilities. Because show for her Justice has no color Justice has no race or religion. She confirmed facts of the story that I needed to know wasn't a pack of walls or dog I needed to know. She says me to the lawyer who organized all the other lawyers, and I asked them all my questions. He was a businessman when he when he started organizing now, he was retired New Jersey judge eighty four years old, but as a young man in his sixties, he had just started a business. He was struggling to to to support a new family. And I wanted to know why this man would help black families moving into New Jersey. And what he told me knocked me over. He said, I remember the moment. I made the decision I go. What do you mean? The moment. He goes I was sitting on a couch in New Jersey watching TV. And it was a movie I looked it up. The movie was called judgment at Nuremberg. Now, this we had three channels y'all. They go off at eleven pm. And then they suddenly had breaking news. It was nineteen sixty five breaking we have breaking news all the time. Now rolling knows this Malania has a jacket breaking news. But back, then it was a rare thing they broke away from an ongoing movie to show a bridge in Alabama. And he said he watched the news as these marchers left, a sacred sanctuary and went to March across that bridge. And he said he watched them as they were confronted by Alabama state troopers, and those marchers we're going to kneel and pray, but they didn't get a chance to kneel and pray I know they were going to kneel and pray 'cause I've talked to some of the foot soldiers talk to my colleague, always my hero. John Lewis told me they were going to kneel and pray, but just as they went to pray. They get gassed tear-gas shot at the storm stormed with Billy clubs beating them viciously. And this man on a couch in New Jersey is horrified by what he sees? He thinks to himself I should go to Allah Bama but realizes he can't leave his new business. He can't even afford a plane ticket. But he didn't give up that he knew that. This was not the beloved community that our country calls to be he knew that he pledged an oath to liberty and Justice for all that demanded more from him than just words. And so no he couldn't go to Alabama. He decided to get up right there and say to himself I'm going to do the best. I can with what I have where I am. And he gets on the phone and starts calling around who might be about an hour legal work. I can spare and he found this woman named Lee porter who was like having Louis. Thank you Jesus. I need some help. And the two of them started working together to represent black families four years later. He says he gets a case file with two names on it. Terry. And Caroline Booker, my parents, and they went to work moving my family into the home. I grew up in. I'm gonna tell you right now. I would not be here. If it wasn't for marches on a bridge would spider man a thousand miles away in New Jersey. Who then went on? And change the outcome for generation not yet for we are connected to each other. We are tied at one destiny. You are not alone in your fight. When you stand up for Justice when you stand up for truth when you stand up for love. And that's where I want to end..

"I personally though, I really hope that we pick a candidate who is more progressive who is more populist, and who can really speak to, you know, the the the real issues that matter to to working class folks to poor folks because I think that that is key to winning the election. I I don't think a a mushy centrists who doesn't, you know, define where they're at on key issues is the is the answer in terms of winning this election. Well, in in terms of candidates presidential candidates on the democratic side. Bumping into each other. That seems to be happening on Sunday in Selma Alabama where John Lewis is leading the commemoration of the civil rights March on the bridge fifty four years ago. Where he was almost beaten to death. Cory booker. Is there Bernie Sanders is there and also shared Brown? Is there? He's he's shared brands has he actually declared. I'm he's he's kinda he has he is not he hasn't made the final decision as to whether he wants to run. And I think that's I think that's genuine. I think he's still thinking about it. Right. But he's Nico. It's called the dignity of work to which was inspired by king. Yes. Exactly. So is that going to sort of more into a campaign the dignity of work? I mean, he's got some good working class credentials. He seems like a regular guy. I think he is. I I mean, I I will I will say up front that that shared Brown is one of the people that I'm, you know, personally closest to who's who's running or thinking about running and that I've been kind of talking through with with him and his potential. The team about what a campaign might look like. So I'm I'm biased in this regard. But I've always liked shared because from the very first moment he got to Washington, he was fighting against bad trade deals like NAFTA. He was fighting for higher wages for for working people. He voted against the the defense of Marriage Act that that Bill Clinton and everybody else signed even though even though he's from Ohio, which is a more conservative state on those issues, and he voted against the Iraq war, even though most of the leadership of the Democratic Party supported it in in in in the early two thousands. So he's been a really gutsy progressive guy from the very beginning. But he does he has an ability to to listen to and talk to working class, folks. Like those in Ohio, and he's he's the only democrat in that state. Who's wanna statewide elect? Action since two thousand six he's just got the ability now, even even in spite of his strong, progressive record people there who are more conservative on a lot of things that I mean, as you know, you know, high went went strongly for Trump last time, but but candidate like share it has has the ability to reach them. And I think that's the kind of candidate that we need in this presidential election. But if he gives up his Senate seat to run for president the Republicans will pick up a seat one thing, no not necessarily. I you know, I think that he doesn't have to give up the seat to run a only only to win. I think if he if he wins the presidency he's gonna have that'd be a special election for the Senate seat. He's going to have a lot of. And I think my might be able to help a democrat when that special election, we'll just in closing the front runner at this point. In terms of polling, and certainly in terms of donations is Bernie Sanders. He raked in a ten million dollars in less than a week. So he's the front runner, and it's sort of interesting in a way that he inspired a lot of people to run. And now, they're running the younger ones are running against him. Is that an irony? Well, it is a little bit ironic. I think I think part of it frankly is that with everybody taking a pass for years ago except for Bernie, none none of none of these other. Folks went you know, decided to run against her because they thought she couldn't be be and Bernie, I don't think Bernie actually thought he would win when he entered the race. But he wanted somebody to be raising these issues, and then he caught on a much much more than anybody including him sought. He would. And the result has been that he's been. I mean, if you look at the polling, he's been the most popular politician in America over the last several years consistently. And so he is the kind of candidate that I think would do would do. Well. And I I know I know there's a lot of Democrats who don't don't think that's true. But I, but I think Bernie could be a great candidate. And I think. You're right. I think right now he's the front runner. Mark. Thank you very much for joining us today. Thank you for having me. And I I love being on. Well, thank you. And again, I've been speaking with Mark locks is president of American family voices in a partner at democracy partners, and the co founder and CEO progressive strategies, he served as a special assistant to the president for public liaison in the White House and is the author of the progressive revolution.

"Time check for you right now six sixteen and it is. Seventy seven degrees in downtown Chicago we're continuing our discussion with Reverend Gregory Livingston one of the March organizers a Thursday's March on. The lake shore drive, expressway there and the, question is are protest marches effective Gregory we went into the break and I just want, to pose that question to you and then we're going to go right to our callers because you talked about the fiftieth anniversary of. Dr king's March in Marquette park and I think that that is. A great analogy to, us here but the reality is is that the protest marches that Dr, king engaged in had proven results we can. Talk about the Voting Rights Act we can talk. About also the Civil Rights Act we can talk about programs related to pray President Johnson's war on poverty will, all the result of the numerous marches and. Protests that took place during the civil rights struggle. Of the nineteen fifties and sixties so far In. This, particular instance, when father Pfleger shut down the Dan Ryan the reality is is that there were no real concrete legislative results that occurred as a, result of those protests, likewise with you you said that you would like to see a, redistribution or more equitable distribution of funds. And terms of being allocated, to the, city south and west sides as well as the resignations of mayor Rahm Emanuel and police superintendent Eddie Johnson that's not going to happen and, when, we talk about you know how can we measure in an empirical sense that you know we're going to get more funds than the mayor can come out and say hey I'm allocating these funds Well doctor you've got a. Thirteen year career for fifty, five to, his assassination in nineteen sixty eight so and when the Montgomery bus boycott began in nineteen fifty five everybody gives up on the bus at, one, time when they first From nineteen December. I nine hundred fifty five to December twentieth nineteen fifty six and then the voting rights Jackson the. Civil Rights Act would. Nineteen sixty four nine hundred. Sixty five ten years when. They first, started and there were many markets in, between. The, whole idea is that we know that it's just not working out just because you lift weights. One day doesn't win you're gonna change your body you have to. Keep going I mean even with Dr king marched through Selma Alabama Pettus bridge they. Had about, five hundred marchers and two thousand police, officers In you know in in in in a similar situation here you had about, two to three hundred police officers in about one hundred and fifty protesters at least for the lakeshore drive protests because when God began his marches were. A kid and got the idea of Marci from against. The British crown they would be outnumbered by the army soldiers Right and and you know I appreciate this historical overview but the reality is is that you know when we come out or people, will suggest when you come out and you make these sort, of nebulous or open ended demands they aren't concrete enough to get some sort of a. Needy immediate response the understand what I'm saying It was it was a little bit different. Dr king Steinman terms up Do you Black, and white, you know to get blacks to have the same rights as. White citizens and so now we're talking about a situation where, the poor you know and we can be defined jungle race if we want to, do that but the poor are being treated as second class citizens that there's a tale of two cities here in Chicago is obvious all you have to do is, drive? Through right What would ask tale of two cities And the powers that be are not going to lie down. And rest because we March one time To March continued to protest continue to. Strategize in order to beat them down well we're going to. Go to the. Phone lines right, now we have a patient p p. is the first time caller thanks for calling Chicago speaks p you're on the line with Reverend Gregory Livingston Hello this is hey how you doing Early morning, so I, wanted, to say that Is Active in a, way and then it.

So knowing anything so if people walking around and people know that they did and they're not saying right now you live on. The south side are you? Fearful at times and do you feel that the recent protests that one took place on the south side in terms of the? Dan Ryan protests that. Was right, there you know in the so-called hood But do you think it was affected said again? A lot of ways. Now if, not having a vehicle With a five year old daughter now it will be a word how do you feel that how do you feel in terms of the situation, that just happened recently where the mother was, getting into the car with her young.
