  1. A member of the campus reading committee stated that this won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work/ Biography. Its timeliness and weaving of personal and public stories can definitely appeal to students and give instructors a lot of inroads to lessons about history, current events, social justice, and a lot more.

  2. I really enjoyed this book. I think it provided an excellent background on the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. It also provided a nice background on John Lewis who is an incredibly impressive individual and his story of public service and standing up for your rights should be very motivational for students.

  3. This book was written in 2012 so it is interesting read some of John Lewis’s thoughts about the future. It is a memoir but it is also a how to guide about protest and activism. Each chapter is a characteristic of what you need to do to grow and sustain a movement: Faith, Patience, Study, Truth, Act, Peace, Love, Reconciliation. I agree with Annette that it is a very good and easy to read history of the civil rights movement.
