This graphic novel trilogy is a first-hand account of Congressman John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis' personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement. Book one spans Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. Book two takes place after the Nashville sit-in campaign. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper's farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington D.C., and from receiving beatings from state troopers, to receiving the Medal of Freedom awarded to him by Barack Obama, the first African-American president.… (mehr)

We have a standing Congressman who was a major part of the Civil Rights Movement, who made his story into an award-winning graphic novel series. Read this. Show it to small people. Learn things, then go forth and learn more things. ( )

Heartbreaking and inspiring. Can't wait to read the rest in the series. ( )

John Lewis relates the story of his life, from difficulties he faced while growing up, his yearning for an education, and his gradual involvement with activism and the civil rights movement. The graphic novel format tells the already powerful story with even more power as violent and shocking situations related to the civil rights movement are recorded. One section that stood out was where the students used a pamphlet they created - with pictures - to illustrate how to respond to violence during a peaceful demonstration or sit in. I could see where Lewis's later love for the visual format must have started. I learned a lot about the struggles and methods used during the civil rights movement and how it influenced John Lewis as he got into politics.
Those who enjoy history should find this book fascinating, even if they are unfamiliar with the graphic novel format. I would definitely recommend it. ( )

I love graphic novel memoirs/biographies. These two genres complement one another so well. The emotion that can be communicated by a good artist adds a fantastic element to a personal story. This story, of all stories, is particularly good for this medium.

This is history everyone should know. Recent history everyone should know. Every time you see a screaming mob in this remember that they are real and likely still living. John Lewis is an American hero, and it's an honor to share a country with him. ( )

"Eisner winner Powell’s dramatic black-and-white graphic art ratchets up the intensity in this autobiographical opener by a major figure in the civil rights movement.

In this first of a projected trilogy, Lewis, one of the original Freedom Riders and currently in his 13th term as a U.S. Representative, recalls his early years—from raising (and preaching to) chickens on an Alabama farm to meeting Martin Luther King Jr. and joining lunch-counter sit-ins in Nashville in 1960. The account flashes back and forth between a conversation with two young visitors in Lewis’ congressional office just prior to Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration and events five or more decades ago. His education in nonviolence forms the central theme, and both in his frank, self-effacing accounts of rising tides of protest being met with increasingly violent responses and in Powell’s dark, cinematically angled and sequenced panels, the heroism of those who sat and marched and bore the abuse comes through with vivid, inspiring clarity. The volume closes with the founding of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (which Lewis went on to chair), and its publication is scheduled to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, at which Lewis preceded Dr. King on the podium: “Of everyone who spoke at the march, I’m the only one who’s still around.”

A powerful tale of courage and principle igniting sweeping social change, told by a strong-minded, uniquely qualified eyewitness. (Graphic memoir. 11-15)" A Kirkus Starred Review, www.kirkusreviews.com
