现在以一种新的方式来纪念一位民权传奇人物。PBS电视台WXXI的制片人詹姆斯・布朗报道了纽约罗彻斯特的艺术家们是如何向已故的约翰・刘易斯致敬的。本则新闻来自艺术和文化板块Canvas。这堵墙将成为地标，这些颜色不会褪色。在我们离开后很长一段时间，它还会在这里。我就在Genesee啤酒厂对面的St Simon's Terrace长大。这座城市给予了我很多东西，能回到这里表达我对这里的爱，我感到非常兴奋。这幅画画的是约翰・刘易斯年轻时演讲的场景，原始照片来自丹尼・里昂，总理，那天的民权摄影师。我们只是想尊重他的遗产以及他为了我们黑人和棕色人种的公平权利所做的一切。他最近去世了，我只是想对他和他的名字以及他的遗产表示敬意，同时也把丹尼・里昂的形象带进大众的生活。所以，它比生命还要重要。我们不会忘记自己自己要走的路。“我在发声”是它的主题。这个项目的名字就叫“我是”。所以我们会在芝加哥结束。第一幅是“我是一个男人”，照片来自孟菲斯的环卫罢工。第二个是在肯塔基州的路易斯维尔，主题是“我在歌唱”，它是一张抗议照片，人们在唱歌、鼓掌，手举在空中。
