  • His words liberated me.
  • I thought, this is it...
  • This is the way out.
  • John Lewis began reading the Bible by the time he was 5 years old. It was one his first and greatest inspirations, prompting him to even preach its teachings to his chickens. Throughout his life, Lewis would continue to base his beliefs, education, and decisions on the nonviolent teachings of the Bible.
  • When John Lewis had first heard Dr. King's sermon on the radio, it was the first time he had heard the church's principles applied to society in what is called the 'Social Gospel'. King's words had a profound effect on Lewis, driving him down the path of public speaking, and ultimately allowed his influence in the Civil Rights Movement.
  • When John Lewis attended the non-violence meeting led by Jim Lawson, he was immediately drawn to his words. Lawson spoke of nonviolence, war, poverty, and racism. It was as if his own beliefs were being repeated back to him. Lawson's instruction eventually led to Lewis' involvement in sit-ins and other peaceful protests.
