By the fall of 1963, the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into the American consciousness, and as a chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless direct action, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatant injustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crow strikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The only hope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silenced by voter suppression: "One Man, One Vote." To carry out their nonviolent revolution, Lewis and an army of young activists launch a series of innovative campaigns, including the Freedom Vote, Mississippi Freedom Summer, and an all-out battle for the soul of the Democratic Party waged live on national television. With these new struggles come new allies, new opponents, and an unpredictable new president who might be both at once. But fractures within the movement are deepening... even as 25-year-old John Lewis prepares to risk everything in a historic showdown high above the Alabama river, in a town called Selma.… (mer)

graphic nonfiction/memoir (civil rights history). I liked this series a lot but feel I didn't appreciate this as much as Lewis' memoir Walking With the Wind--I think I was just tired but my tendency with graphic materials is to skim over the pages, and the subject really deserves more than that. Still highly recommended, esp. for an audience that maybe doesn't want to pick up a 500 page book. ( )

It is no coincidence that the final book in the March trilogy has been published this year... Did Lewis know just how dire our situation would be with the Republican platform of unabashed hatred? These books are already timeless--not just between the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s to Obama's election but in everything that has happened since--but holy cow. I wish that every American would read these books between now and November, especially.

These books are absolutely necessary reading for all Americans. Even if you do not read graphic novels, you owe yourself a read of MARCH. ( )

this picks up after the freedom rides, starting at the church bombing in birmingham (where people literally celebrated the deaths of those little girls), and takes us through the civil rights act of 1964 and the voting rights act of 1965. this is such important history. i am so disgusted all over again that we've more or less rolled back the voting rights act, and that we are no longer protecting the rights of all americans to vote. specifically, of course, the black vote is being targeted. after all these people went through to secure the vote, and we just forget the history and continue to make it harder for black voices to be heard. white supremacy is despicable.

i understand the push/pull between nonviolent groups and people like malcolm x, but it's surprising to me that sncc and the sclc didn't see more eye to eye. and that the naacp was so much further to the right than sncc. i guess the naacp is like the older, more conservative, slower moving mature folks that are overtaken by the younger more radical folks who get things moving faster that i was struck by in the first book. they are still important but can be usurped by younger, newer ideas.

there's a quote from a mlk speech where he says that every black person who passively accepts segregation without a fight is partially responsible for the death of those who are fighting for integration. i can't get on board with victim blaming. it's not the job of those who are just trying to survive to bring about the end of their own oppression; it's the job of those who have the power and do the oppression to end it. i understand the concept and his point, but it sits with me very uncomfortably.

as a series, these books are excellent. they are enlightening and show in such an in-your-face way all that these people went through to achieve what should have, in a respectable society, been freely given. there were parts where i would have liked more detail, but those were few, and that information can be found elsewhere if i wanted to dig deeper. i rarely feel like graphic novels/memoirs give enough information, but these are (in general) a great exception. it would help if the people the drawings represent looked more like the actual people, so a reader doesn't have to pause to make sure who is speaking or being shown, but that's really my only complaint about the art. these drawings are so powerful and show so much. john lewis (and so many others in sncc and the sclc) was an absolute hero.

At last I finish the series. Well worth it. John Lewis did a great job! I learned a lot, got my heart broken, and received inspiration from these courageous, persistent people. No one should have to go through this. I'm glad these books are available to make this history easily accessible. Highly recommended! ( )

For so many months I’d kept my emotions bottled up to be strong for those counting on me to lead, but there I was, alone in the dark with it all.
What sort of sense did it make if we could own part of a company, but not be served by it.
