Congressman John Lewis is one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress, and receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African-American president. In March, a graphic novel trilogy, Lewis “brings a whole new generation with him across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, from a past of clenched fists into a future of outstretched hands” (President Bill Clinton). Book One, co-written with Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell, spans Lewis’s youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., and the birth of the Nashville Student Movement.
