John Lewis wrote in his final essay in the New York Times to be published on the day of his funeral:

So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.

Donna Dufresne was touched by John Lewis’ life and his contributions to our society. She was motivated to sing his praises and wrote and produced the song Walking with the Wind in his honor. She shares it with us to encourage and motivate us to stand up for justice for all peoples of the world.

WALKING WITH THE WIND, Congressman John Lewis was one of the most visible activists of the Civil Rights era, marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King and leading protests throughout the South. Walking with the Wind is a Memoir of the Movement by John Lewis and Michael D’Orso.”
