On Saturday, Nashvillians gathered to celebrate the renaming of a stretch of Fifth Avenue North between Jefferson Street and Oak Street at Nashville City Cemetery in honor of famed civil rights leader John Lewis.

Lewis, who died on July 17 of last year, was a leader in the Nashville Student Movement of the 1960s and went on to represent Georgia's 5th Congressional District for more than three decades. Lewis' mentor, the Rev. James Lawson, was part of Saturday's event, as were several state and local leaders.
