Summary
Congressman John Lewis recounts his life, which began in rural poverty in Alabama, and included leadership of the movement to desegregate Nashville, a speech at the 1963 March on Washington, chairmanship of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and election to the U.S. Congress from Georgia in 1986. "John Lewis tells his story of struggle in the civil rights movement, of comradeship in that community, of its battles and triumphs."--Jacket
