The true story of a Civil Rights legend

Despite progress, it's no secret that when it comes to social justice, we have a long way to go. This generation is ready to roll up our sleeves and do the work! But if we don't know where we've been, it's hard to see a clear path to where we're going.

That's where this book comes in. It's the true story of Civil Rights leader John M. Perkins, and it will inspire you to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God in the face of radical social change.

Despite jailings, beatings, loss of loved ones, and great personal sacrifice, John's faith allowed him to return good for evil, love for hate, and progress for prejudice as he brought hope to Black and white alike. His story shows us how we can join the fight against inequality and respond to opposition with compassion, vision, and hope.
