Cain got his first big break with the Pillsbury Co. in 1977. That was 16 years after Lewis got his head bashed in Rock Hill, 14 years after Lewis' speech at the March on Washington, and Twelve years after Lewis was almost beaten to death in Selma, Alabama. Some of my people like to talk about pulling themselves up by their bootstraps. They tend to forget that at least one of those straps has John Lewis' blood on it. I will never forget.
