‘I’ve Had My Skull Fractured For The Right To Vote’: John Lewis Sends Out Powerful Message Urging Citizens To Go Out And Vote

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who was part of the civil rights movement, took to Twitter on Monday to urge citizens to go out and vote like never before, reminding us all that he had to withstand physical abuse in order to earn that right.

As the midterms approach, Lewis took to Twitter to share this message:

“I have been beaten, my skull fractured, and arrested more than forty times so that each and every person has the right to register and vote. Friends of my gave their lives. Do your part. Get out there and vote like you’ve never voted before.”

Lewis has had to endure very tough hardships in order to expand voting rights for African Americans.

He suffered a skull fracture after Alabama state troopers confronted protestors in what is now historically referred to as “Bloody Sunday.”
