Sign1News has learned there will be six days of ceremonies to honor the late Representative John Lewis before he’s laid to rest.
Lewis’ family says tributes will start today Saturday in his native Alabama with a service at Troy University.
His body will lie in repose in Selma, Alabama before a procession brings it across Edmund Pettus Bridge on Sunday.
It will then lie at the Alabama state capital.
The motorcade will then bring Lewis’ body through Washington, DC to lie at the Capitol.
The events will end in Georgia, the state Lewis represented in Congress.
After a service and tribute at the Capitol in Atlanta, he will be laid to rest at Southview Cemetery on Thursday.
In light of coronavirus, mourners are invited to observe the tributes by virtual means.
