Ben & Jerry’s Debuts The Long March, an Art Exhibit about Civil Rights Icon John Lewis
Rep. John Lewis dedicated his life—repeatedly risking injury and arrest—to defending every American’s right to vote. The icon passed away on July 17 leaving a legacy of fighting for justice and inspiring so many to continue his battles. “The vote,” he often said, “is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool or instrument we have in a democratic society and we must use it.”
Ben & Jerry’s is honoring his legacy with this livestream launch of The Long March, a new art installation dedicated to telling the congressman’s story and inspiring everyone to get out and vote! The exhibit is based on the best-selling award-winning graphic novel by Rep. Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell.
The virtual launch takes play on September 22 at 7pm EST.
