During the social liberties development, Lewis was one of the authors of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and afterward turned into its executive from 1963 to 1966.
He co-sorted out and talked at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the assembly at which Dr King conveyed his memorable I Have a Dream discourse.
