Here we have the backstory of how John Lewis joined the movement, and the early victories in desegregating lunch counters in Nashville, where Lewis went to divinity school.

Training in principles of non-violence was essential to the success of the movement. This is a point that is increasingly important in today's civil rights activism - people need to be educated not just in the ideas behind the movement, but the strategy that can best effect structural change.… (mer)
