Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 02/01/2018 Doeden presents a straightforward look at the life of John Lewis and his inspiring involvement as a young man in the civil rights movement. Lewis grew up in the segregated South and was a child of sharecropping parents. A visit north changed his whole perspective of what America could be like for blacks in the South; he wanted to help create a world in the South wherein blacks could move around freely and not have to fear for their lives. This fast-paced read is filled with facts describing the overall view of Lewis’ involvement in creating a better world not just for African Americans but for all communities that were affected by poverty and war. Bolstered by plentiful, dramatic photos, the book presents a time line and further reading for those who want to delve deeper into Lewis’ philosophy or the civil rights movement. A motivating, passionate look at a man who is not afraid to live, protest, and fight for his belief in equal rights for all Americans. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
