A Picture of Those Who Came Before

The Nation has an interesting cover for this week in celebration of the new president. I understand the choice of most of those depicted from Emmett Till, the four young girls murdered in Alabama:Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, Denise McNair, & Addie Mae Collins; Sojourner Truth, but ya know – Henry David Thoreau just absolutely escapes me.  Someone help me.

  2. President Johnson but not a single Kennedy?!
