Representative John Lewis inspired a nation and more than one generation. He left a legacy of courage, activism, and non-violence. Young people and students are now picking up the torch and working for a better and more equal world. These young activists are working for civil rights, environmental justice, indigenous peoples' rights, women's rights, LGBTQ rights as well as leading the Black Lives Matter movement. In this exciting and informative episode, Hans (recently finished graduate studies) and Ben (second-year university student) discuss how John Lewis has inspired them and how student activism appears today. This is a unique episode that compares activism in the 1960s and activism in 2020. Interesting discussion by two young activists, practical advice on getting involved, and lessons from a civil rights icon. What does "good and necessary trouble" look like to you?
