John Lewis in the Lead

By Cobblestone Magazine

Because the civil rights movement is so frequently discussed in schools and the media, it’s easy to lose sight of the revolutionary force that it was in the 20th century. John Lewis in the Lead, however, offers a fresh look at the movement and Lewis’s role in it. Sparse yet powerful text [and] beautiful color illustrations throughout . . . evoke the emotion of the era. This book will appeal to younger readers looking for a simple yet engrossing account of John Lewis’s life.
