Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement


Location: Unknown

This past weekend, Congressman Eric Cantor joined Congressman John Lewis and a bipartisan delegation on the Congressional Civil Rights Pilgrimage through Alabama.

Following this trip, Congressman Cantor said:

"As we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of so many pivotal moments in the civil rights movement, I felt it important to make the trip to Alabama to honor the sacrifices of patriots like John Lewis who stood on the front lines making them possible. I was especially moved by the gesture of Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Murphy who presented John Lewis with the badge off his uniform apologizing for the police department's failure to protect the African American community in those turbulent days of the '50's and '60's. Reflecting on these important moments in our nation's history, I look forward to focusing on ways in which together we can continue to confront challenges and solve the nation's problems."
