Book Overview

Congressman 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 nonviolence - 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.

   Everyone should read.
My husband has been reading this series to our 8-year-old son and really enjoys it. It is a fantastically written book for curious children's minds and evokes good conversations that should be had with our children in this day and age. More than ever, it is important to remember where our country has come from and not forget that it has been a fight on the whole way. We don 't want history to slide back and these candid conversations with the next generations can open minds and instill a desire for unity. John Lewis is a truly remarkable person of our times, and his writings are a must read for children and adults alike.
   The Series Offers Great Insight to Young People with Widely Varying Reading Skills
I bought this series for my niece, who starts her first year as an English teacher in Southern Illinois because she is building a library in her classroom. She says that the format of writing and art offers great insight to young people with widely varying reading skills and social backgrounds. Probably more importantly, it provides them with a historical perspective to which they might not respond at all if it was presented in another format or medium.
   A Framework for today's world
Book two by Barack Obama and the artist Nate Powell is the first black part of John Lewis's civil rights memoir, from the 1960-63 civil rights movement to 2009, when President John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and President of the United States, inaugurated the first black president. The backdrop helps encapsulate the movement and its struggle, a struggle that continues to this day, though in more camouflaged ways. Read the full review[... ].
   Great graphic masterpiece in great condition.
Timely arrival and in better than good condition without any wear, folds or markings. The envelope was secure and the book was preserved in book condition. So happy to have this one of three graphic historical works and by a giant of civil rights who died within the year, John Lewis. I hope to share this and the other two books in the trilogy with my grandchildren. Drawings are black and white, no color, so that it is not as interesting to children, but adolescents and adults will surely enjoy the easy read that fleshes out the civil rights story from John Lewis'perspective.
What a great way to teach children about his legacy of faith, character, bravery and sacrifice for the country he loved. To show that sometimes means loving your country, you have to make some good trouble. To teach that even those who hate you, who would kill you, can turn things around. This project was a bold and creative idea to tell the story of bold people.
The struggle for African Americans to gain some rights, as provided in the Constitution, is a given. I really like the fact that it was written for young people ''. A way to teach them to get the true history. It is also easy to read for older persons. John Lewis'story is one of the many African American stories that must be part of the whole American history because if the whole history is not told, we can never gain our full rights as a people.
   Just brilliant!
The March trilogy captures in word and image the spirit of these times and the enormous cost of modern freedom. Where I now sit 15 miles from the streets of Nashville, I can see the U.S. at a new, unimagined crossroads, choosing to continue on the path of democracy first imagined so long ago or turning to populist fascism once again as a reasonable choice to hide the lies and the fears it feeds. Caren has always been a little bit of trouble for Caren.
A very down-to-earth and relatable retelling of the events leading up and immediately following the March on Washington. The illustrations are fantastic!
   Received a beat up book
I am sure that this is a very good book, but I ordered a used-good condition edition.
