"This memoir puts a human face on a struggle that many students will primarily know from textbooks... Visually stunning, the black-and-white illustrations convey the emotions of this turbulent time... This insider's view of the civil rights movement should be required reading for young and old; not to be missed." - School Library Journal (starred review)
"Heroism and steadiness of purpose continue to light up Lewis's frank, harrowing account of the civil rights movement's climactic days... Powell's dark, monochrome ink-and-wash scenes add further drama to already-dramatic events." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
About the Author
Congressman John Lewis was a leader in the American Civil Rights Movement. He was chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and played a key role in the struggle to end segregation.

He is co-author of the first comics work to ever win the National Book Award, the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel memoir trilogy MARCH, written with Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell. He is also the recipient of numerous awards from national and international institutions including the Lincoln Medal, the John F.

And it wasn't that long ago.
It's also fair to say that there are clearly some people left who still have that hatred within them, as countless dash-cam and cellphone video have proven. Hopefully overall as a society we find it much more a horrific outlier and not "just the way things are."
I love the interweaving between the Obama inauguration and the events of the past that people had to survive (and some did not). It brings even more power to the message. And I greatly admire the style and nature of the graphics. I think they perfectly bring to life the darkness but also the optimism of what was happening.
Well recommended. A must-read.
This is a book that series that should be read by every middle school student and discussed - and revisited often.
The artwork is great because it indicates the dark times that was endured and felt. It’s a very easy reading style that lets the art tell the story with a well selected wording to bridge the details.
As LeVar Burton says, "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."
I would add - and reminds us all how much remains to be done.
