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. Despite more than 40 arrests, physical attacks, and serious injuries, John Lewis remained a devoted advocate of the philosophy of nonviolence. 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. Kennedy "Profile in Courage" Lifetime Achievement Award, and the NAACP Spingarn Medal, among many others. He lives in Atlanta, GA.

Lewis and illustrated by Nate Powell, MARCH is the first comics work to ever win the National Book Award, and is a recipient of the Will Eisner Comics Industry Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award Special Recognition, and the Coretta Scott King Book Award Author Honor, among other honors.

I hope to see a day when this is merely history and not a warning, a call to vigilance. These books should be required reading in public schools across the nation. Representative John Lewis is a living national treasure, the last living legend of the 20th century civil rights era. That makes him sound like Captain America, and in a way he is, except he's real.
March covers John's early life and the beginnings of his involvement in peaceful protest. He embraced nonviolence fully then and continues to do so today. March rightfully and clearly outlines the events and the atmosphere that lead to the need for the March from Selma to Montgomery, and the marches that preceded it.
The March continues today, as voting rights have been turned back, as hate and bigotry have once again moved to the forefront of our nation and government. Let this be our guide to resistance. The moral arc of the universe is long (the key word here), and it bounces as it tends toward justice. But it only moves there if we will it.
A final note on the wonderfully expressive art. The storytelling is clear, and the style is very reminiscent of African-American styles that sprang from the era, but seems strongly influenced by manga art styles as well.
