Majority Whip James Clyburn

This is a summer rerun episode! Mark returns next week, and until then, we're taking a look back at some of last year's best episodes. We start with a tribute to the inimitable John Lewis, who passed one year ago on July 17th. Majority Whip Clyburn met Congressman John Lewis back when they were just John and Jim, marking the beginning of 60 years of friendship and activism that eventually propelled them both to Capitol Hill. Whip Clyburn recalls the day they met in 1960, not surprisingly brought together while organizing for action, as well as "one of the most memorable weekends" of his entire life that happened with John at his side. Hear their stories and Clyburn's dedication of this election year to John in today's episode.
