March Book One by John Robert Lewis

March: Book One (March, #1)March: Book One by John Robert Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read March for 2 reasons; the Hub 2016 Challenge and Twitter Book Club for Feb (Social Justice) and March (graphic novels). This graphic novel touched me deeply, I loved the character of John Lewis, the way illustrations made you sick but also honored so many who fought/marched/demonstrated/served so ardently for civil rights then and now. It was so important to find out about the man who had so much to tell- his life in Washington, DC, his beginnings in Pike County Alabama as he loving raised chickens & practiced preaching to them and his pivotal role in the civil rights movement. A must read!
