Statement from Clark Atlanta University President Regarding Rev. C.T. Vivian and Rep. John Lewis

07/18/2020

The Clark Atlanta University family extends our deepest sympathy upon the loss of two giants of the civil rights movement: the honorable Congressman John Lewis and the Reverend Dr. C.T. Vivian.

As outspoken advocates for civil rights and social justice, their contributions and impact upon the rights of the “least of these,” and people of color will live in perpetuity as exemplars of leaders committed to the cause of freedom through peaceful protest and non-violence.

Indeed, two giants have fallen. 

George T. French, Jr., Ph. D.
President
