John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation recently launched a civil rights tour for Atlanta and Virginia students
D’Angelo Taylor can still remember the day that he met the late Congressman John Lewis.
Taylor says he was in the second grade when the civil rights icon visited his school and left a lasting impression on him.
“From what I knew about him, he was a great person,” said Taylor. “He was just a good soul.”
Fast forward to many years later, Taylor, now an 11th grader at Drew Charter School, along with other students from Atlanta and Virginia recently participated in a multi-city civil rights tour hosted by the John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation.
On Thursday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Taylor along with Leslie Schaffer, a tour chaperone and a social studies instructor at Drew Charter School, talked about their experience on the tour.
