His Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis And The Power Of Hope
by Jon Meacham
- Inspiring Lives
The powerful life of a civil rights legend
An intimate and revealing portrait of civil rights icon and U.S. congressman John Lewis, linking his life to the painful quest for justice in America from the 1950s to the present, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham.
Drawing on decades of interviews with Lewis, Meacham writes of how the activist and leader was inspired by the Bible, his mother’s unbreakable spirit, his sharecropper father’s tireless ambition, and his teachers in nonviolence, Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King, Jr. As Meacham chronicles in this extraordinary biography, Lewis brought a still-evolving nation closer to realizing its ideals, and his story offers inspiration for Americans today who are working for social and political change.
