The in Selma, where Civil Rights activists led by John Lewis crossed on Bloody Sunday in 1965, is named after a Confederate officer and grand dragon of the KKK. It is time to rename the bridge. sounds about right to me.

It is now 2020. It is past time to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge after Congressman John Lewis. Wipe out the name of a white supremacist. Honor a civil rights hero.

Back in July, I called for Alabama to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge in honor of Congressman John Lewis. With the news of his cancer diagnosis, I am renewing that call.
