After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, 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 young activists of the movement struggle with internal conflicts as well. But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy ... and once Lewis is elected chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, this 23-year-old will be thrust into the national spotlight, becoming one of the "Big Six" leaders of the civil rights movement and a central figure in the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.… (mehr)

This is the second volume in Representative John Lewis's trilogy of graphic novels about his involvement in the civil rights movement. That's right, a first hand account of the civil rights movement as told by an acting Congressmen - it doesn't get much realer than this. I encourage everyone to read this and then keep up with the incredible things he is continuing to do in Congress. This book does not pull its punches, and it illustrates just how gargantuan a task that the movement faced and what they went through in pursuit of their goals. There's also some really emotional juxtaposition between past and present. I can't wait to get my hands on the third volume, and I will for sure be recommending these to my friends, esp those with kids. ( )

It's so hard to find the words for this one. It takes a raw look at what the believers of nonviolent resistance did during the Civil Rights movement. How they trained, what was done to them. Their resolve and strength is unimaginable to me. If I did not know that this was history, that these folks were real, I wouldn't believe their acts to be possible. Regardless of whether you agree with their nonviolence stance or religious beliefs, you must respect their moral integrity and dedication. These are great people. Many of whom we do not even know the names of. ( )

Eye opening, literally and figuratively. Full of powerful images and reminders of our not too distant past. I don't think I fully understood how awe inspiring Rep. John Lewis's life is until reading this. I hope that it's a standard in schools for years to come. ( )

This series by @repjohnlewis should be on the bookshelf of every young American--and maybe every young person in the World. ( )

March: Book Two is the second book in a three part autobiography graphic novel series about the early life of Congressman John Lewis and the fight for Civil Rights.

This book is focused on the Freedom Riders and Parchman Farm. The book ends with the March on Washington and the fatal bombing of Birmingham’s Sixteenth Avenue Baptist Church. I only knew briefly what went on with the Freedom Riders and not a lot about the violence they endured.

As I said in my review of the first book, I'm not usually a fan of comics that are just black inked art but Nate Powell does a good job at the artwork. I also realized it gives the book more depth to the darker and ominous events that are happening. ( )
