Rep. John Lewis’ Last Words …. “🙏🏽 Read by Morgan Freeman on MSNBC ‘The Last Word’ 🙏🏽 …. “!!

~~August 1, 2020~~



Even a few days prior to this passing, Rep. John Lewis had the frame of mind of penning his ‘last words’, to the New York Times and requested that they be published on the day of his funeral.



Congressman John Lewis, who died on July 17, 2020, wrote this essay shortly before his death. He wanted it to be published on the day of his funeral. His staff provided a copy of the essay to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on the morning of July 30, four hours before his 11AM funeral was to start.


In a special Last Word, Morgan Freeman reads the words of John Lewis’ final essay, which he requested be published in the New York Times on the day of his funeral: “Together, You Can Redeem the Soul of Our Nation.”

Aired on 7/30/2020.

Well done, Lawrence.

Morgan brings an added emotion that reading it myself was missing. Loved the pictures that accompanied the narrative.

Thank You. RIP Mr. Lewis, go with peace.
