A full circle moment for Congressmember John Lewis who was beaten on the Pettis Bridge in 1965. Congressmember Lewis and President Obama share a powerful embrace during this weekends’ events in Selma.

And now to quote Jay-Z …

My President is black, in fact he’s half-white
So even in a racist mind he’s half right
If you have racist mind you’ll be a’ight
My President is black but his house is all white
Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk
Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run
Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly
So I’mma spread my wings, you can meet me in the sky
