John Lewis, an American congressman and a hero of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, has dressed as himself 50 years on at the San Diego Comic Con.
Lewis, one of Martin Luther King's allies, and the last living member of the movement's famous "Big Six" leaders, attended the convention dressed in the same clothes as he wore on the famous Selma to Montgomery march shown in the Oscar-nominated movie Selma.
