Angela Lewis talks to the press. She had just received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama on behalf of her father, slain civil rights worker James Chaney, during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House on November 24, 2014 in Washington, DC. The Medal of Freedom is the country's highest civilian honor. The first African-American U.S. president gave medals to the families of civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were killed in Mississippi in 1964.
