This short but powerful audiobook collects the wisdom of the late Civil Rights activist and congressman John Lewis. Covering a wide variety of topics, narrator Don Cheadle wisely does not attempt to mimic Lewis’s distinctive speaking voice but creates a similar effect of thoughtful consideration tempered by subtle humor. As Lewis’s subjects range from reflections on racism and institutional violence to his love of cats and distaste for peanuts, Cheadle nimbly adapts his tone and style to match. A powerful foreword written and read by Andrew Young adds valuable context on Lewis’s life. Each chapter begins with a brief piece of suitable instrumental music, reinforcing the idea that this is an audio the listener can enjoy at random or beginning to end.
