Across That Bridge, by US Congressman John Lewis (D) of Georgia, tells the story of the historic 1965 Selma march to Montgomery, the Alabama capital, where Lewis and others met racial violence as they attempted to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge to petition Gov. George Wallace for their voting rights. The wisdom in the pages of this book is timeless.
