Charlottesville resident Kazir Khan made waves at this year’s Democratic National Convention with his extemporaneous speech evoking the memory of his son, Captain Humayun Khan, a University of Virginia graduate and posthumous Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medal recipient. With his wife, Ghazala Khan, by his side, he chastised Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his suggestion of banning Muslim immigrants, holding aloft his pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution for dramatic effect. In an election cycle that has been notoriously brutish, it was a moment of authentic emotion delivered with steely resolve. Illustrator Paul Hostetler, also based in Charlottesville, offers this month’s cover as a tribute to the Khan family and as a reminder to all our readers to vote on Tuesday, November 8.
