John Lewis, who at age twenty-five marched in Selma, Alabama, and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, was a longtime U.S. congressman and civil rights icon, a visionary and a man of faith. Drawing on decades of wide-ranging interviews with Lewis, Meacham calls him “as important to the founding of a modern and multiethnic twentieth- and twenty-first-century America as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and Samuel Adams were to the initial creation of the Republic itself in the eighteenth century.” NPR calls the book “well worth reading…an inspiring book that comes at a time when the world desperately needs inspiration.”
