Civil Rights icon John Lewis sat down with “Top Line” to discuss his new autobiography, “March,” Trayvon Martin, and the Voting Rights Act. And his story begins in an unassuming place…a chicken coop in Georgia.
Lewis recounts, “Some of these chickens would bow their heads, some of these chickens would shake their heads, they never quite said amen, but I’m convinced that some of those chickens that I preached to in the ‘40s and the ‘50s tended to listen to me much better than some of my colleagues listen to me in the Congress. As a matter of fact, some of those chickens were a little more productive. At least they produced eggs.”
