Does this paragraph end with a concluding sentence or a supporting detail? John Lewis, Georgias long-time congressional representative, risked his life to win equality for himself and his fellow African-Americans. In 1965, Lewis was a young and passionate civil rights activist, who participated in the march over Selma, Alabamas Edmund Pettus bridge in order to win the right to vote. The marchers were met by police armed with clubs and snarling dogs. Lewis and 90 other demonstrators were badly hurt. But the violence against the demonstrators, which ended up being televised, outraged the public and increased support for African-American civil rights. Twenty-three years later, when Barack Obama was inaugurated, Lewis said, Barack Obama is what comes at the end of that bridge in Selma.
