John Lewis participated in thousands of protests. He was arrested 45 times. He served 33 years in Congress. This is a portrait of courage. Many consider him an American Hero not only a hero for African Americans. "Sometimes change calls for a little trouble." Until his death on July 17, 2020, he called upon his fellow citizens to get into "Good Trouble"
