If you haven’t heard about the March graphic novel trilogy written by Congressman John Lewis, now is the time to put it on your radar. Lewis was a key figure in the civil rights movements during the 1960’s, participating in lunch counter sit-ins, the March on Washington, and the walk from Selma to Montgomery, and the graphic novel trilogy provides a sobering and accessible entry point for readers new to civil rights history. The trilogy has won multiple awards, including the 2016 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for volume 3, and my guess is that this will become a classic work of memoir and history that we’ll be seeing in classrooms across the country.
