  • Theme: Civic Ideals and Practices
  • February 20, 1960 a group of 82 protesters were addressed. They did not resist, and they did not give into violence.  They instead sang songs of hope and of a day where the would be free. Bail was set extremely low, but even then no one was willing to pay. They were all eventually released later that night. The day marked another successful encounter and one step closer to non-segregation through nonviolence. 
  • "John Robert Lewis"
  • Theme: Individual Development and Identity
  • Sir, I am John Robert  Lewis.
  • Theme: Individual Development and Idenity
  • During these "non-violence" training sessions, members would play both roles. Attackers would seek to dehumanize their victim while victims woul make an effort to humanize their attacker. These practices were done in order to properly enforce their civil ideal of non-violence. 
  • The Perspective Change
  • In light of their civic ideals, a group of blacks organized multiple sit-ins at diners around the south. These practices often resulted in dangerous circumstances for participants. These individuals, however always responded by their strong ideal of non-violence and found a way to tactfully get their point across. 
  • Accepting the Scarf
  • Theme: Individual Development and Identity
  • Seriously, take it.
  • When Lewis meets Dr. King for the first time he is inquired about his name. In stating his whole name, Lewis demonstrates personal growth as he figuratively takes the responsibility as a symbol for cultural change.
  • The shift in perspective triggered by Lewis trip north with his uncle seemingly plays a huge role in the way he begins to see the world. Coming back to an area of segregation feels heavy and burdensome. He mentions feeling forever changed.
  • "After that trip, home never felt the same, and neither did I."
  • Lewis accepting the scarf demonstrates personal growth and shapes the raders perception of his identity.  Here Lewis displays humility and maturity with grace just as he does so in several other scenes in the novel.
  • Thank you brother
