But he denied it in front of all of them, saying, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
The DPC book group learned last year that members of our church in 1962 had been involved in the prosecution of Congressman John Lewis. Lewis and others had attempted to eat at a restaurant near DPC on a Sunday afternoon, for which they were fined and received 90-day prison sentences. Their conviction was later reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Lewis’s story appeared in our history room last year during Lent – cautiously, temporarily, after over fifty years. The station’s empty frames this year invite us to remember our other denied stories, images, and people. We invite you into that discussion on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Whose stories are missing?
