The Young Man Who Became Friends With A True Legend: Congressman John Lewis
The 7 hour car drive to meet his hero, John Lewis,has changed Tybre’s life forever. Charged with getting good grades to carrying the torch, Tybre is ready for the challenge. Civil rights activist, political leadership, and role model is what Tybre is destined for.
Following the footsteps of Congressman Lewis who was only 19 when he joined Dr. Martin Luther King becoming an activist, Tybre is ready. Young and eager, Tybre understands why there is so much to learn to help teach others change must occur.
Tybre is becoming familiar with history first hand to make changes for the future. Over the past 3 years, he has traveled to many states visiting historic sites with his grandmothers Lauren and Leigh who stated they have learned so much from their grandson. We honor these dedicated women on taking the time out to escort Tybre to so many historic landmarks. Ms. Leigh, a professional photographer, has captured each of these amazing images of his journey. It’s a pleasure to see so many great moments captured of Tybre during his quest. The best is yet to come.
After participating in a play in second grade, Tybre realized the need to learn more about history. Now, as a young activist, Tybre plans to influence his generation to avoid just watching, but actually helping to make changes. He wants to encourage young people to learn more about history because there is so much to learn.
Tybre understands things do not change over night, yet he also knows hundreds of years of mistreatment is far too long. Change must occur. Tybre had the pleasure of joining Congressman Lewis’ final journey on March 8, 2020 in Selma, Alabama which commemorated the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” on the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Tybre recognizes hate is taught. He believes everyone can change. The time to change is now.
Tybre wants to teach everyone that history provides insight on what occurred in the past does not need to continue present day, or the future.
