Here's a portrait of civil rights icon, John Lewis, as a young man. Born in Alabama in 1940, he helped lead the fight for racial justice and voting rights in the South. A proponent of nonviolent protest, Mr. Lewis was arrested over forty times (and beaten several times as well). As eloquent as ever, he is now a representative of Georgia in the US Congress. He is a great American.
Thanks for viewing. Signed prints of this piece are available here!
