Bill Sanderson - Obama for The Atlantic

In the September issue of The Atlantic, Bill Sanderson created this brilliant portrait illustration of President Obama surrounded by important figures in African American History, (Frederick Douglas, Booker T Washington, WEB DuBois, Martin Luther King Malcolm X, Jessie Jackson Senior, and Rosa Parks) for an article that discusses how Obama's race played a role in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting. 
In addition to the finished b&w illustration, Bill did a color version that was never used in the magazine.
