John Lewis remembered in Troy, Alabama

In the rural Alabama county where he was born, civil rights leader and longtime Georgia congressman John Lewis was remembered on Saturday as a humble man who sprang from his family’s farm with a vision that “good trouble” could change the world.

The morning service in Pike county was held at Troy University, where Lewis would often remind the chancellor that he was denied admission in 1957 because he was black, and where decades later he was awarded an honorary doctorate.

Lewis died on 17 July at the age of 80.
