About the Books:
When 10-year-old Tybre Faw learns about civil rights hero John Lewis, he is drawn to the man. Later, his grandmothers drive him to the Selma memory march and he gets to meet his idol, and John Lewis invites Tybre to join him on the march. This leads to moments that changed Tybre’s life in Because of You, John Lewis. A photograph of young Tybre with his hero concludes this touching book by Andrea Davis Pinkney.
