Here’s what Bryan wrote for John Lewis:
“I’m mourning the great John Lewis. I’ve spoken to him a few times in private, and he came to my Broadway play, All The Way, about Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King, and the civil rights act of 1964.
He was gracious and kind and a fierce proponent of peaceful protest for human dignity and justice. He will be missed, but his legacy is evident in #BLM and will live on. Rest now, sir, you’ve done your part…now it’s up to us.
