Resource Description

John Robert Lewis grew up in the segregated American South and his desire for an education led him to becoming one of the organizers of the first lunch counter sit-ins and participating in marches for equality. The memoir flashes between his childhood years and the year of Barack Obama’s inauguration as President of the US. This award-winning memoir in graphic novel format describes events in an accurate and clear fashion and the clearly drawn illustrations capture the emotion and significance of the conflict-filled era. The themes of equality, acceptance, and non-violence can launch discussion of civil rights movements, non-violent protest, and rebellion and revolution. Social considerations noted.
