John Lewis UM Civil Rights Monument Dedication Speech
On October 1, 2006, the University of Mississippi dedicated a Civil Rights monument inspired by the efforts of James Meredith and those who have followed his footsteps. The highlight of that ceremony was this powerful speech by Representative John Lewis, who implored us to "stay with the house."
