Watch full John Lewis speech at the March on Washington

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who died at the age of 80, famously gave a speech at the March on Washington in 1963. At just 23, he was the youngest civil rights activist to deliver an address to the crowd that day, which is best remembered for Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Lewis' remarks also left a lasting impression although it is not as well remembered.
