I believe this book shows how riveting an art form this can be when the writing, drawing and subject matter come together to create an outstanding graphic novel. This first volume opens the story of Congressman John Lewis by introducing the man who helped to bring about great change in America with honesty, courage and determination.

The book shows us how a young black man grew up aware of discrimination and became determined to bring about social change. The early days of the civil rights movement are illustrated and we are introduced to some of it’s leading lights such as Martin Luther King and James Lawson. This book is not just a book of facts, this is a very readable story with characters that you root for.

March: Book One is a powerful read, a great story that enthralls as it educates. ( )

20th January 2009, the inauguration day of President Obama: John Lewis, black member of the U.S. Congress, looking back to his childhood in Alabama on the small piece of land his father had bought after years of working as a tenant farmer and sharecropper. Given the task of looking after the chickens he developed a special relationship with them, got to know each one, refusing to eat them and - always wanting to become a preacher - preaching to them nightly. He recounts a perilous journey in 1951 when an uncle took him North, driving through Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky where they had to avoid white racist thugs, only relaxing in Ohio where he encountered a whole new world of white and black people living side by side.
Lewis is looking back to 1954 when the US supreme court outlawed school segregation, the bus boycott of 1955, his first public sermon at the age of 17; he meets Martin Luther King and is inspired byJim Lawson to organise non-violent sit-ins with the aim to stop segregation of lunch counters in Nashville stores succeeding finally in May 1960.

This should be mandatory reading for anyone under 50 who cares about the future. We have to know our past...or be doomed to continue to not understand one another. ( )
