Earlier this week, before Congressman John Lewis famously crowd surfed on The Late Show, he shared a story about attending church in Atlanta in 1963 during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.
It was the church of Martin Luther King Jr’s father.
Lewis shared that on occasion, “Daddy King” would sit with the congregation and let his son take a turn.
From the pew, he could be heard saying to his son:
“Make it plain. Make it clear. Make it real.”
Wise and timeless words for anyone attempting to connect, persuade, or share an important idea.
