MSNBC’s ‘Headliners’ Will Capture the Legacy of John Lewis
Sunday nights are usually reserved as our night for ratchet TV, especially reality shows. But now that the final episode of the Married to Medicine reunion has aired and The Real Housewives of Atlanta is … well, boring, we are rethinking how we spend our Sunday nights. This Sunday, Jan. 20th, we’ll definitely be in front our screen tuned to MSNBC at 9 p.m. The network’s Headliners documentary series has turned its lens on Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
The episode will capture the legacy of the Civil Rights icon during the one-hour documentary. Host Joy Reid, political analyst and host of MSNBC’s AM Joy, spoke in-depth with people like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and more who have benefited from Lewis’s sacrifices and activism. Headliners: John Lewis promises to be a remarkable journey through and intimate look at Lewis’s life.
Just in time for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Headliners: John Lewis airs Sunday, Jan. 20th, at 9 p.m. on MSNBC. As you know, Lewis was the youngest speaker at the 1963 March on Washington, was injured on Bloody Sunday in 1965 while trying to lead marchers across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, and served more than 30 years in Congress. The series features “public figures at the forefront of our national dialogue and at the center of today’s news, offering insight into influential and transformative leaders,” according to press materials, and has highlighted Elizabeth Warren previously.
