The Conscience of Congress: The Tipline for 24 July 2020

Monday’s highly anticipated hearing before the House antitrust committee will likely be postponed as Congressman John Lewis lies in state in the US Capitol on Monday and Tuesday. The civil rights crusader died last Friday at the age of 80. Over the course of his life, Lewis championed getting into “good trouble” as he was arrested 40 times during sit-ins, freedom rides and nonviolent protests. He was the last surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where he proclaimed: “We do not want our freedom gradually, but we want to be free now! We are tired. We are tired of being beaten by policemen. We are tired of seeing our people locked up in jail over and over again.”
