BET Remembers Congressman John Lewis With Special Tribute "JOHN LEWIS: IN HIS OWN WORDS" Sunday, July 26 at 7:30 PM ET/PT on BET & BET HER

CBS News Correspondent Jericka Duncan to Host and Narrate the exclusive BET News Special

NEW YORK -- BET will honor the legacy of former U.S. Representative John Lewis with an exclusive news special called "JOHN LEWIS: IN HIS OWN WORDS," airing Sunday, July 26 at 7:30 PM ET/PT on BET and BET HER. Hosted by CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan, this BET and CBS NEWS production will weave together compelling footage of the former Congressman's life and his own inspiring words to present a powerful reflection of his tireless dedication to the non-violent fight for racial equality and justice. The special will trace his momentous journey on the frontlines of history, from the freedom rides to the Black Lives Matter Movement, and one of the last interviews he conducted before his death. America lost an icon, but we join so many in celebration of his life, legacy and immeasurable contributions to the Civil Rights Movement and the nation through public service.

"Lewis was a tireless activist for civil rights for over six decades, joining Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his fight for voting rights for African Americans when he was in his 20s. Now more than ever, we owe Representative Lewis an enormous debt of gratitude for all that he's done in his historic career," said Scott Mills, President of BET Networks. "He was a fearless leader and a legend in the movement for civil rights. His contributions allow us to stand on the shoulders of giants as we continue the fight for social justice today. We will honor his legacy by making 'good trouble' of our very own."

"JOHN LEWIS: IN HIS OWN WORDS" will recount some pivotal moments in the life of John Lewis, including his days as a courageous Freedom Rider, being an organizer and speaker at the 1963 March on Washington, surviving Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965, becoming an outspoken Congressman, champion of equal rights and being an advocate and supporter of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
