His obituary in the August 19, 1819 Poulson’s American Daily Advertiser described him as such: "A statesman of the Revolution, jealous of liberty himself, he wished its enjoyment to all, and while many around him were trafficking in their fellowmen, Lewis was engaged in breaking their shackles asunder."

The 'Dream in Flight' mural at Point Breeze Avenue and Dickinson Street

A mural commemorating famous African American printmaker Dox Trash used to be on display at 16th and Girard, now half-covered by a new apartment complex

    One of the biggest threats to Philly murals? New construction
    In Point Breeze, the "Dream in Flight" mural is a symbol. "It represents people coming together," said Alfred Rodgers, 53, who owns Goodman's clothing store on Point Breeze Avenue near Dickinson, about a hundred feet away. Commissioned by Mural Arts, the image of a young boy with a dove in his outstretched hand was painted by community artist Josh Sarantitis in 2000.
