Are you sure about this?

I can find no corroboration, and false death rumors about him have been floating around.

I met him, a few years ago. A very inspiring man. The world is worse without him.

Rest in Peace.

They are running a 60 minute special about Lewis right now on MSNBC

Love him or hate him that man experienced real racism.

RIP…

In 1964 I was on a train trip with my family around the country. We had to change trains in Birmingham Alabama. I was from the Bay Area and we didn’t have any form of segregation there. For the first time I saw whites only restrooms and drinking fountains. I went out on the street and almost every store had a whites only sign in their front window. I think that if I had not had that experience I would have looked at the protests in the following years much differently.

That smirk. Love it. “Ya I pooped in your toilet, I’m changing the world, and one day, you’ll cry when I’m gone.”

I will miss the sound of his voice.

The world lost a truly inspirational human being. May his legacy be remembered forever.
