1. More memorabilia than most

    “January 20, 1994: Congressman John Lewis in his Atlanta office with two of his favorite memorabilia items from his days as a civil rights activist in the 1960s.” That’s the March 19, 1965 issue of Life Magazine. If you had bought it at a newsstand back then your purchase would have set you back 35 cents. You can browse the entire issue here. A very young Lewis is wearing a trench coat at the front of the line of marchers in Selma, Alabama.
