John Lewis


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. You can see a large collection of my map drawings here
