March: Book One (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

March is a graphic novel detailing Rep. John Lewis’ experiences growing up in the South during segregation. The novel speaks on his youth and the views he held growing up, concerning community, church, school, and society. The story follows Lewis through his first meeting with Dr. King and entrance into the Nashville Student Movement and their attempts to end segregation.

I loved the way the imagery laced into the storyline. This is the perfect novel to read by yourself or with your little ones. The story went along very smoothly and its inclusion of both current events as well as the past made it all the better. I enjoyed this graphic novel very much and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, but insightful read.
