March

In March: Book One51MIoDffaFL._AC_SR320,436_QL65_.jpgCongressman John Lewis recounts his lifelong involvement with the civil rights movement in this graphic novel series. Book One focuses on Lewis’ early years as the son of an Alabama sharecropper who went on to discover nonviolent activism in college.

In March: Book Two, 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.

In March: Book Three, the conclusion to the series, it is fall of 1963, and the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into the American consciousness, and as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless direct action, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatant injustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crow strikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The only hope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silenced by voter suppression: “One Man, One Vote.” 61u4XUzTCoL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg511dAbh3w5L._SX338_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg
