Congressman John Lewis, an American icon
and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his
award-winning graphic novel trilogy with co-writer Andrew Aydin and
artist Nate Powell, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare
his own generation to join the struggle. Now, March brings the lessons of
history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today's world.
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 movement's young activists place their
lives on the line while internal conflicts threaten to tear them apart.

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.
