March: Book One by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell

Dr. Blair Kelley, associate professor of History at North Carolina State University, will lead a discussion on March. This graphic novel “is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.” The book was recently named a Coretta Scott King Honor Book by the American Library Association.
