Storyboard Text

  • I arrived at the presentation eager to hear the story of a civil right leader
  • Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing John Lewis
  • I wrote to Mr. King Jr. and he invited me to Nashville to pursuit my education since Troy, AL did not allow me to
  • He soon began telling us the struggles he had to go through, one of which not being able to get an education in his hometown and not having the support of his parents
  • I met Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President John F. Kennedy. I spoke 6th while Mr. King went last. After that, Mr. Kennedy invited us to the White House
  • Despite his rough beginnings, he had major accomplishments that will forever be remembered and appreciated 
  • He ended his presentation with his infamous phrase "get in trouble-necessary trouble"
  • Get in trouble. Good trouble of course but necessary trouble. You're never too young to make a difference
  • No one ever informed me of the significance young people had on the civil rights movement...I met Mr John Lewis and the rest is history-thus 'March' was written and became extremely successful. 
  • Then came along congressman Andrew Aydin. He gave his story about how he was never really informed of what was going on. He met John Lewis and they co-wrote 'March.' A graphic novel depicting Lewis' story. 
  • I've always heard and learned about the Civil Rights Movement through history books. After attending this presentation, I have learned about it through someone who actually went through this and experienced it.  I am glad I got to learn about it through the someone else's POV, not just a history book.
