Abstract

March recounts the true story of Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and

human rights. Book One spans his youth in rural Alabama, his life changing

meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville

Student Movement, and the battle to tear down segregation through

nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the

steps of City Hall. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, March reflects on the

highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement, and, like the 1957

comic book Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story that inspired

him, brings it to life for a new audience.

Comments

Clark faculty will participate in a roundtable discussion of

Congressman John Lewis’ graphic memoir, March. Lewis wrote March

in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times

best-selling artist Nate Powell, both of whom will join the discussion.
