Summary
Author Jabari Asim and illustrator E. B. Lewis give readers a glimpse into the boyhood of Civil Rights leader John Lewis. John wants to be a preacher when he grows up -- a leader whose words stir hearts to change, minds to think, and bodies to take action. But why wait? When John is put in charge of the family farm's flock of chickens, he discovers that they make a wonderful congregation! So he preaches to his flock, and they listen, content under his watchful care, riveted by the rhythm of his voice. Includes an author's note about John Lewis, who grew up to be a member of the Freedom Riders, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and demonstrator on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, and then became a Georgia congressman
