It seems impossible that it’s been a week since we lost civil rights icon John Lewis to cancer. Although this review is brief, I can assure you that Across That Bridge is one of the most important books I’ve ever read.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I deliberately took my time reading this important memoir. Each chapter/essay dealt with a theme of peaceful resistance via a particular concept: love, peace, unity, etc. And coming as it does from a civil rights hero like John Lewis, this is important information for our own time.
We are living in a time when peaceful resistance is the only way to stand up against the tyranny that has come to live in the Executive Office; Lewis has a number of great recommendations from which we can all benefit.
