This illustrated history of the civil rights movement draws parallels to current events and offers inspiration for today’s young change-makers.

Revisiting episodes from the civil rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s, Good Trouble highlights essential lessons for modern-day activists and the civically minded. In words and vivid pen-and-watercolor illustrations, journalist Christopher Noxon dives into the real stories behind the front lines of the Montgomery bus boycott and the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins.

Noxon profiles notable figures such as Rosa Parks and Bayard Rustin, all while exploring the parallels between the civil rights movement era and the present moment. This thoughtful, fresh approach is sure to inspire conversation, action, and, most importantly, hope.
