Presented by the Houston Public Library in observation of African American History Month and in conjunction with the exhibit, “Organized Love: Ideas on Non-violence”, on view at the Houston Public Library’s African American Library at the Gregory School.

Congressman John Lewis is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African-American president.
