historic March 26, 1965 issue of LIFE magazine "Memorial
at Selma" with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and His Eminence
Archbishop Iakovos on the cover. The inscription written on
the frame stated in part, "In Commemoration of the Unity
of the African American and Greek Communities." Lewis
sustained severe injuries from the beatings he received as a
participant in the "Bloody Sunday" voting rights march on
March 7, 1965.
"When Dr. Martin Luther King issued a call, members of your
church responded, and we will never forget it," Congressman
Lewis said. "And fifty years later you came to Selma to walk
with us. Thank you."
About his own participation during the Civil Rights
Movement after having been inspired to take action by the
words and deeds of Dr. King and Rosa Parks, Lewis said, "I got
in trouble. Good trouble, necessary trouble. And I became convinced that there is not any room in our society for discrimination based on race, or color, or faith, or what part of the world
you may come from."
Lewis also quoted the late Philip Randolph, organizer of the
1963 March on Washington, saying: "Maybe our foremothers
and forefathers all came to this great land in different ships, but
we are all in the same boat now."
The banquet program included a Keynote Address from His
Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and Response from Supreme
President Phillip T. Frangos. Ahepan Jim Vlassopoulos, retired
deputy fire chief, Washington, DC Fire & EMS Department;
and Dianne Katsakis Quebral, corporate social responsibility
program manager at Fairfax County, Virginia; made a special
presentation to support the participation of police officers and
firefighters from Greece in the Fairfax 2015 World Police & Fire
Games.
