The nation is mourning the death of a civil rights hero and “conscience of the Congress,” Representative John Lewis. Adults and young adults wanting to know more about Lewis and the civil rights movement will find a powerful account in his stirring graphic novel trilogy, March. The incidents of violence, including the vicious clubbing of Lewis during the Selma to Montgomery march, reveal the determination and courage of the activists, and Lewis’s determination to hold to nonviolent principles displays his remarkable character. A series that serves as a powerful call to action for today’s activists.
