Video: Rep. John Lewis on hate crimes bill

John Lewis is a giant in the civil rights movement, with scars from the Selma marches to prove it. He spoke at the 1963 March on Washington minutes before Dr. King gave his I Have a Dream speech. He has represented Georgia's fifth congressional district since 1987.

He wasn't afraid of racist police with clubs, and he's not afraid to say the words "gay" and "transgender" on the floor of the United States House of Representatives.
