Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights leader and long-serving Georgia Democrat who died July 17, will be memorialized with a final service on Thursday, July 30. It will be broadcast live. 

The service is the last portion of a six-day program honoring his life and work, and the last ceremony before his internment in Atlanta's South-View Cemetery. Previously, a military honor guard oversaw the movement of Lewis' body across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, where Lewis helped lead a march for voting rights in 1965, and his body laid in state in the rotunda in the United States Capitol.
