  • A 23-year-old civil rights activist from Alabama named John Lewis was the youngest speaker at the famous March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom led by Martin Luther King Jr, delivering a fiery speech to hundreds of thousands of marchers gathered on the Washington Mall. Lewis went on to serve on the Atlanta City Council, and was elected to Congress in 1986, where he has earned a reputation as one of the most liberal members of the House. He has also teamed up with Andrew Ayden and illustrator Nate Powell to write March, a three volume graphic nonfiction series documenting Lewis’s life. We listen back to a conversation we had with Lewis in 2014.
  • We listen back to a conversation with Oregon state Republican Sen. Jackie Winters about her new role as Senate Minority Leader, what she hopes to accomplish in that role in the coming 2018 short legislative session and beyond.
