Taken at a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement in 1965, this photograph of US Congressman John Lewis shows the iconic activist being beaten by State Troopers during the historic march from Selma to Montgomery, which remains an enduring piece of American history and part of the fight for equal rights by Black Americans across the nation during this era. Lewis would go on to have one of the most influential political careers and would return annually to the scene of this attack, which left his skull fractured, to commemorate the historic clash between protestors and would go on to state:
"The vote is powerful. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have in a democratic society, and I don't want people to forget that people paid a price. Selma, these churches, and these people gave it everything they had. We wouldn't be where we are today as a nation and as a people (if it) hadn't been for this community."
Lewis was first elected to Congress in 1987, and he would go on to serve seventeen terms under Democratic leadership. His political views and activism were shaped by his early life, where he experienced heavy segregation in rural Alabama before traveling with an uncle to Buffalo, New York, at the age of eleven and experiencing racial integration, which he had previously not experienced. Upon returning to his hometown, he became aware of the stark contrast and experiences where he suffered from racism, which culminated in his political action.
