Making history come alive takes a special skill, a skill that John Lewis possesses. As a civil rights activist, United States representative, and author he has a lot to say. Living through lunch counter sit-ins and marches of the 60s, and even giving a speech at the March on Washington, John Lewis was on the front lines of the civil rights movement.
In his graphic novel March, Mr. Lewis brings the history of integration and revolution to life. Telling his stories of fighting for justice and equality, he shows the beauty of that time in history. This book and its sequels are perfect for reluctant readers because the easy comic book-like style makes it an entertaining read.
There’s something special about reading history from someone who lived it first hand. John Lewis fought, spoke, and went to jail for freedom. And in the March series we get to witness it all with him.
