Almost sixty years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. edited a 16-page comic book about the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Distributed by hand in churches, schools, and nonviolence workshops, it dramatized the fledgling movement and its tactics to a generation of future leaders— including a young John Lewis.
Today, Lewis is continuing that legacy, and using comics to educate and inspire a new generation. Together with Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, Congressman Lewis is creating a transformative work of literature in the graphic novel series March: a #1 New York Times bestseller that brings his memories of the civil rights movement to urgent new life.
As a graphic novel memoir, March engages readers with unforgettable imagery and first-person narration, combining the disciplines of art, literature, and history in a single document. Students will not only understand the history of the civil rights movement but also connect in a deeply personal way with the story of nonviolent activism in America.
On campus, March is a catalyst for vital discussions about diversity, society, and active engagement in one's community, in ways that are not just historical but directly relevant to today's world. And what's more, it focuses specifically on the role of young people.
