    Congressman John Lewis Speak at Communities United for Safety Rally

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AntAntoine recorded this video of Civil Rights activist Congressman John Lewis speaking at a rally organized in the wake of the now-infamous assault of a gay 20-year-old in Atlanta, Georgia. 'His presence sent a strong message against this type of beating/violence and sent a strong message to the community that people care and that the world is watching,' he said. 'That's why I wanted to submit it to CNN; to keep the message going to the community that people care and that it doesn't stop with the rally.'
