The NSAH family is saddened and mourns with the rest of the world the passing of two great warriors of the fight for civil rights, the Rev. C.T. Vivian and U.S. Rep. John Lewis.
“Their lifelong legacy in the struggle for justice, equality and fairness will never be forgotten. Surely we are standing on the shoulders of giants, as our country continues to face a world of uncertainty and civil unrest. We are able to vote, use the same restrooms, sit anywhere on the bus and frequent any restaurant because of the struggle in the fight for civil rights of these two heroes”
Today, on behalf of the NSAH, we honor these two men and send our deepest condolences and sympathy to their families and to those who are mourning the passing of our beloved heroes.
