Summary, etc.:
"Lewis's role in the Nashville Movement - a student-led effort to desegregate the city of Nashville through nonviolent sit-ins - made him a defining activist of his day and helped set the tone for the civil rights movement. Though he was repeatedly a victim of violence and intimidation, his belief in peaceful action, inspired by his mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, became the core of his cause and vision. In this classic bestseller, John Lewis vividly captures America's tumultuous civil rights era. His natural gift as a leader would continue. In 1986, he won a congressional seat in Georgia, and remains in office to this day."--From the cover.
