This graphic novel trilogy is a first-hand account of Congressman 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. Book one spans Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. Book two takes place after the Nashville sit-in campaign. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper's farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington D.C., and from receiving beatings from state troopers, to receiving the Medal of Freedom awarded to him by Barack Obama, the first African-American president.… (mer)

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

This is a good book for readers who like to learn about history, but maybe don't enjoy reading it as much. I myself love watching History Channel and learning about History, but sometimes find it hard to read texted books about it.

I'm usually not a fan of comics that are just black inked art but Nate Powell does a good job at the artwork. The narrative also kept me intrigued and wanting to learn and read more.

This has been on my shelves for quite a while, but I've put off reading it until I had all three volumes, as I suspected I would want to read them all together. (I did. I read them all the same day.) I finally checked the third volume out of the library and I was ready to go.

Framed as Lewis's recollections, told on the day that he, a long-time Congressional Representative, is getting ready to attend Barack Obama's inauguration, this volume takes us through his childhood, his education as a young activist, and the Nashville lunch counter demonstrations. This framing is a brilliant way to emphasize just how much things have changed within a single lifetime.

A very powerful introduction. ( )

Graphic Novel Book Club, April 2017

I read all three volumes together for the last book club meeting and so all of these reviews are going to end up going together.

Like many people I felt the need to get this book into my hands and the hands of those reading with me as soon as our president decided to slander the wrong congressmen for not understanding how the world worked, or having done enough for it. What I didn't know going into this book, I feel is printed on my heart coming out of it.

I felt so deeply moved and charged by this book. I felt the use of gorgeous color covers of such wam colors but deeply rooted images and messages of the time worked amazingly against the stark, straight to the point black and white of the interior pages. I love the inclusion of it being a story to children, and a leadup to the meeting with Obama, and how it ended with the idea for making these books.

The story between the beginning and ending frames is one to break the heart and make the soul of America, marked in blood and bloodied courage. I felt weak, ashamed, proud, angry, and sorrowful in so many different places. I felt so glad that these books had sold out twice on Amazon from so many people wanting to educate themselves, and I feel like I've been changed in ways beyond words for adding it to my/our ongoing and current fight.

As my knowledge of American history is relatively very new, I only got to know about Rep. John Lewis and his contribution to the Civil Rights movement a few years ago when I was living in Atlanta; around the same time the third part of this graphic novel won the National Book Award. I’ve wanted to read this series since then but it never worked out, and it’s such a shame on my part that it took this great leader’s demise to make me pick it up. But even if it’s late, I still think it’s the correct time because of all the Black Lives Matter protests that are taking place again across the country, and I think it’s never not the right time to remember our history and learn more about the people who are the reason for us having so many of our rights today.

I thought the story was really endearing because it’s told as Rep. Lewis getting ready to attend President Obama’s inauguration, but stopping to answer some questions for a couple of little Black boys visiting his office. And learning about an innocent boy who loved taking care of the chickens on the form, his profound desire to become a preacher which even led to sermonizing to the chickens, and ultimately realizing that he can do so much more in the fight for civil rights while studying at a seminary - it’s a very very inspirational narrative. I had only heard about the lunch counter sit-ins but reading/seeing it and understanding how it was all being done by masses of students who felt called to fight for their rights is really admirable, and reminds us again why we see so many young people on the streets these days - they are always on the forefront when fighting for radical changes.

The art style is kept black and white, probably to evoke the aesthetic of the 50s and it’s simple but very evocative and powerful. The violence depicted is also kept very sanitized, probably because this book is catering towards a much younger audience but I’m sure it might not be fully avoidable in the next parts.

On the whole, I think this book/series is a wonderful resource for young Americans to know more about their Civil Rights history and one of its most powerful leaders, especially the events which might always be taught in detail in school. I found it to be very powerful, emotional and inspirational, and I can’t wait to get to part two. And let’s all remember this great leader who suffered so much for the lives we enjoy today, and take up the mantle upon our shoulders to continue to cause “good trouble”, as he called it. ( )

It is part of a trilogy about Congressman John Lewis and his important role in the Civil Rights Movement, advocating non-violence. Part I is about his childhood in Alabama: his quiet demeanor and focus on getting educated. This motivated him to leave the farm and head to an all-black college, ostensibly to become a preacher. It follows his experiences in Nashville, where he participated in sit-ins, in places where blacks were not allowed as well as his key involvement in forming the SNCC. I am interested to read a real biography of John Lewis, rather than continue this series, which suffered from an abrupt ending, era switching back and forth to Obama's inauguration as the first black president, and teeny, tiny print.
