Quote:
Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, the civil rights leader who served in the House of Representatives for over 30 years and was called “the conscience of the Congress,” died Friday at the age of 80.

The lawmaker — who began his struggle for civil rights at 18 during a lunch counter sit-in in Nashville, Tennessee — announced he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer in December 2019.

At the time, he promised not to let the diagnosis stop him, saying, “I have been in some kind of fight — for freedom, equality, basic human rights — for nearly my entire life. I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now.”
