John Lewis was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement (1954–1968) who inspired people all across our country “to get in good trouble” to end segregation, attain civil rights, and advance racial equality.

People of Color Who Inspire is written to supplement the stories about saints in Volume 7 of The Complete Guide to Godly Play. The lesson “The Child’s Own Saint" invites the children and Godly Play mentors to write the story of one of their own heroes. This story, and the others in this collection, serves as an example of this–a hero who is not an official saint of the church, but a Christian person who inspires us all to strive for justice, and respect the dignity of every human being.
