This should be mandatory reading for anyone under 50 who cares about the future. We have to know our past...or be doomed to continue to not understand one another. ( )

This is Congressman John Lewis's story of growing up in the segregated South and his prominent role in the civil rights movement. This graphic novel jumps back and forth between 2009 when Congressman Lewis is preparing for Barack Obama's inauguration, and his past. Told through a series of black and white panels that move fluidly along, this story is very detailed and a fast read. This is an excellent way for upper elementary and middle school students to learn more about John Lewis and the civil rights movement. ( )

Compelling graphic novel of Civil Rights activist and US Congressman John Lewis and his early years, including growing up in the rural south, heading north, and subsequent involvement in passive resistance. A great introduction to a turbulent time; the illustrations make it accessible to readers of all ages and abilities. Highly recommended. ( )

John Lewis recounts his civil rights activism in college, framed by the story of remembering and sharing his memories with two young boys on the day of President Obama's inauguration.

I know a little about the civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, and the nonviolent protests that occurred in the U.S. in the 1960s. For me, it's history. For Congressman Lewis, he lived it. That makes this story really powerful, as he shares his story of a young man growing up the son of sharecroppers and wanting to be a preacher. When he went to college, he became involved with the nascent movement, met Dr. King, and participated in sit-ins at diners who wouldn't serve black men and women. This is "history" to so many, but happened not that long ago, and it's important to remember as painful as it sometimes is to read about it. Ostensibly written for teenagers, this is the sort of book that would and should appeal to a large audience. ( )

Excellent age-appropriate YA (middle/high school, older elementary if they are ready) graphic biography/memoir of Rep. John Lewis' life growing up on an Alabama farm to college and becoming heavily involved in the civil rights movement in the south.

I am going to have my 8th grader read these books, and hopefully my 11th grader as well (he who hates to read, so it will be a struggle). I know a whole lot of adults that should read them too. ( )
