The Book Itch
Lewis's dad, Lewis Micheaux, Sr., said he had an itch he needed to scratch -- a book itch. How to scratch it? He started the National Memorial African Bookstore, a place for exchange of ideas and discussion of social issues that was visited by many people, including Muhammad Ali, Langston Hughes, and Malcolm X.
