A brilliant and empowering collection of final reflections and words of wisdom from a venerable civil rights champion, the late Congressman John Lewis, at the end of his remarkable life.
Congressman John Lewis was a paragon of the civil rights movement and political leadership for decades. A hero we won’t soon forget, Lewis was a beacon of hope and a model of humility whose invocation to “good trouble” continues to inspire millions across our nation. In his last months on earth, even while battling cancer, he dedicated time to share his memories, beliefs, and advice - exclusively immortalized here - as a message to the generations to come.
Organized by topic ranging from justice, courage, faith, mentorship, and forgiveness to the protests and the pandemic, and many more besides, Carry On collects the late congressman’s thoughts for listeners to draw on whenever they are in need of guidance. John Lewis had great confidence in our future, even as he died in the midst of one of our country’s most challenging years to date. With this book, he performs that crucial passing of the baton, empowering us to live up to the legacy he has left us with his perseverance, dedication, profound insight, and unwavering ability to see the good in life.
"His aphorisms are punchy yet never cliched, and you can take his inspirational words with you and play them anytime you need a lift. Actor Don Cheadle narrates each of Lewis’ 43 short essays with clarity and passion, knowing just where to put the right amount of emphasis...Cheadle more than succeeds in embodying the congressman’s message of hope."
