John Lewis ’ March: A Clark Faculty Roundtable with Andrew Aydin & Nate Powell
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.
