John Lewis Helped Republican Martin Luther King Jr. Struggle for Civil Rights to Judge by Character Not by Skin Color


The Republicans in the 1960’s had to twist the arms of the Democrats in Congress to get the Civil Rights legislation passed, which is why Martin Luther King Jr was a Republican, so what caused King’s acolyte and later congressman John Lewis to have become a Democrat remains somewhat a mystery although Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” programs probably had much to do with it.
