Part of TALK series, Civil Rights Revisited
Discussion Leader: Rosemary Kolich

Civil Rights icon and United States Congressman John Lewis wrote this series of three graphic novels based on his experiences in the Civil Rights Movement during the early 1960s. A 1958 comic about Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired him as a young man growing up in rural Alabama, and he sought to instill that same sense of pride in a new generation of youth. The illustrations and first-hand account bring this period to life.
