Summary expansion
"A gripping visual experience that enhances the power of Lewis' unforgettable tale." (Publishers Weekly (starred review)). "Powell captures the danger and tension in stunning cinematic spreads, which dramatically complement Lewis' powerful story...The story of the civil rights movement is a triumphant one, but Lewis' account is full of nuance and personal struggle, both of which impart an empowering human element to an often mythologized period of history...this is a must-read." (Booklist (starred review)). "With March, Congressman John Lewis takes us behind the scenes of some of the most pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement. In graphic novel form, his first-hand account makes these historic events both accessible and relevant to an entire new generation of Americans." (LeVar Burton). "Riveting and beautiful...should be stocked in every school and shelved at every library." (The Washington Post). Congress man John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his award-winning graphic novel trilogy with co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare his own generation to join the struggle. Now, March brings the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today's world. After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, John Lewis is more committed than ever to changing the world through non-violence - but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the deep south, they will be tested like never before. Faced with beatings, police brutality, imprisonment, arson, and even murder, the movement's young activists place their lives on the line while internal conflicts threaten to tear them apart. But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy...and once Lewis is elected chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, this 23-year-old will be thrust into the national spotlight, becoming one of the "Big Six" leaders of the civil rights movement and a central figure in the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
