You Can Take My Mattress, But You Won't Take My Soul
This doesn't seem right ...
Prison- This scene was important in the graphic novel because it shows how the Freedom Riders were able to fight back even with their circumstances (in prison) John Lewis might have included this scene because it symbolizes how protests can take place anywhere and anytime. Lewis had been arrested for being involved in the Freedom Rides as a group they had decided to not pay the fine and spend time in jail. They started to protest inside the prison and they were later released. This does portray good trouble because they fought for equality and were imprisoned.
This scene is important because it portrays the violence and hatred against Freedom Rides/African Americans from white citizens. Lewis might have included this to show how terrible and dangerous the protests actually were and the sacrifices that were made for inequality. In this scene, Freedom Riders had arrived at the Greyhound bus station, but they were met with a mob.This does portray topics of good citizenship because while the Riders were being abused/hit, they did not fight back.
WE WILL NOT BE PATIENT!
This scene was very important because a bus had been firebombed by the KKK. John Lewis might have included this because of how dangerous the rides were and also how violence had increased from before. In this scene, the KKK had firebombed and attacked a bus. This scene does not portray topics of good citizenship but mostly on the troubles/struggles of a Freedom Rider.
Oh my lord, is there a fire outside?
We Must Continue The Freedom Rides
Children's Protest- This is a vital scene because it inspired others to become more involved with the civil rights movement. John Lewis might have included this in his narrative to show how much of an impact young people had in society. In this scene, the children are protesting for their rights and their freedom. We chose to represent this scene in this particular manner because it is showing the children all gathering to make a change in their community. This portrays good citizenship, since the children are participating to make a difference.
John Lewis' Speech- We chose to highlight this scene because there was a lot of controversy about John Lewis' speech. It shows how much words can impact others. John Lewis might have included this in his narrative to show that people interpret words differently. They might look at a word as bad or good. We chose to represent this scene in this manner because it is portraying Lewis giving his speech. This shows good citizenship because he is spreading the word about what he believed could help the community frow and become better.
Meeting at Baptist Church - We chose to highlight this scene because it shows how even though the violence is increasing, they must continue to fight for their rights. Lewis might have included this scene in his narrative to teach readers to never give up until they reach their goal. In this scene, there is a meeting at the church about the increase of violence during protests. We chose to represent this scene with people sitting in a church and John Lewis speaking to depict what occurred during that time.
