John Lewis, US CongressmanHailed by the Washington Post as the "Conscience of Washington," and by the Los Angeles Times as "a cog in the wheel of justice," Ralph D. Fertig began his social activism in his home, filled with German Jewish refugees. In high school and college, he campaigned for desegregation and justice in housing and employment. At the University of Chicago, he fought for academic freedom. He began social work organizing peace between warring street gangs on Chicago's South side. Fertig organized programs for equal rights with the Congress Of Racial Equality and the Americans for Democratic Action.He became a Freedom Rider on a bus bound for Jackson, Mississippi, to help integrate interstate buses. The Sheriff in Selma, Alabama threw him in jail, where White prisoners kicked in his ribs.While running a community center in Washington, D.C., he organized welfare mothers and public housing tenants. Martin Luther King, Jr. invited him to help mobilize the iconic 1963 March on Washington, and to help lobby for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He ran the Greater Los Angeles Community Action Agency serving thousands of disadvantaged people, became a civil rights lawyer, and then a Federal Administrative Judge, ruling on cases of employment discrimination. He taught at the USC School of Social Work rising to the level of full professor, and where he is now a professor emeritus. As President of the Humanitarian Law Project, he was a consultant to the United Nations, and challenged restrictions to free speech in the USA PATRIOT Act before the U.S. Supreme Court.Fertig's earlier book, Love and Liberation, was a Los Angeles Times best seller, praised in its Kirkus review as "a sweeping Jewish love story couched in revolution, and it is written in with an apt power and elegance. The book is a contained epic... An intimate, compassionate work of historical fiction."
