Carry On: Reflections for a New Generation Book Review

When we look to our elders for wisdom, we hope that they will provide the guidance we need.

When the late Congressman John Lewis passed away last year, America lost one of the most respected politicians of our era. One of the icons of the Civil Rights moment, he had a perspective on this country that only someone who lived what he experienced could see.

Carry On: Reflections for a New Generation was published last month. Written by Congressman Lewis before his death, it is a series of observations and insight that comes from someone who walked this Earth for nearly 80 years.

With a foreword by Andrew Young and co-written by Kabir Seghal, this has to be one of the best books of the year. It is written in such a way that is appealing and universal without feeling like the reader is being talked down to. It was as if I was sitting down to talk with a beloved grandparent and learning without realizing it.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely.
