March: Book 3

March: Book 3 is a stunning graphic novel that must be read far and wide. The March series begins with a scene in John Lewis’s congressional office, on the day of Barack Obama’s inauguration. Through flashbacks, we get a most personal look into Mr. Lewis’s history with the civil rights movement and all that he has endured fighting for equal rights and equal voting opportunities. The graphic novel medium, and in particular Nate Powell’s stunning art, works perfectly to detail the brutal and heartbreaking work of the many people fighting for the most basic of human rights. Read the whole series, then share these books with everyone you know.
