A National Geographic book!

John Lewis and Jim Zwerg were young men who came together for a cause. They boarded a bus and headed south, armed with nothing but their idealism, courage, and belief in justice.

When they reached Montgomery, Alabama, John and Jim met a mob armed with chains, bats, and hammers. They were both badly beaten by the mob - Jim nearly to death - simply because they had ridden together on the bus.

John Lewis was black, and Jim Zwerg was white.

It was 1961.
