Patriotic Pick for March 2023
“Walking with the Wind”
by John Lewis
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Teddi Levy Marshall, co-founder of Rolling Greens Inc.:
Walking with the Wind: A Memoir of the Movement by John Lewis with Michael D’Orso. Told in the words of the late congressman from Georgia, this firsthand account of the Civil Rights Movement in the South is a critical addition to every reader’s shelves. Said Edward M. Kennedy of Lewis, “John tells it like it was…[he] spent most of his life walking against the wind of the times, but he was surely walking with the wind of history.”
