Check out Rep. John Lewis’ March this MLK Day

March Book One CoverThe three-volume graphic novel series March chronicles Rep. John Lewis‘ experiences during the Civil Rights Movement. All three volumes have been released and you can read my review of the first volume and the second volume and third volume. Short version, they’re amazing.

Reception has been so good IDW Publishing and Top Shelf have released a collection of all three volumes in a special slipcase not to mention the numerous awards the graphic novel has received including a history-making National Book Award.

The three-volume graphic novel recounts Lewis’ experiences during the Civil Rights Movement, but it also reminds us to experience freedom we have to be willing to risk everything, including our lives and fight for it.

The graphic novels perfectly bookend history by focusing not just on his experiences in the Civil Rights Movement but reflecting them against his being a Congressman about to witness the inauguration of the country’s first Black President, the graphic novels are history in its raw unflinching form. There’s good. There’s bad. There’s honesty. There’s truth.

And 50 years later Cong. Lewis is still fighting speaking up against our incoming President that he views as illegitimate and who will likely set this country back in too many ways to fully comprehend. It’ll also remind you the reader the need to stand up and fight, especially in these coming trying years.

March is an amazing graphic novel. Not only does it entertain, but it brings real history to life recounting the amazing experiences of Congressman Lewis and everything he fought for. I can’t stress enough how good it is. You can pick up a copy of the first volume here, the second volume here, and third volume.
