March: Book Two
March: Book Two | Andrew Aydin, John Lewis
307 posts | 318 read | 2 reading | 95 to read
After the success of the Nashville sit-in movement, John Lewis commitment to change through nonviolence is stronger than ever - but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the deep south, they will be tested like never before. Faced with beatings, police brutality, imprisonment, arson, and even murder, the movements young activists place their lives on the line while internal conflicts threaten to tear them apart. But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy... and once Lewis is elected chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, this 23-year-old will be thrust into the national spotlight, becoming one of the Big Six leaders of the civil rights movement and a central figure in the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.'

Book 2 of 3 focused more upon the Freedom Day and the horrors of fighting for the right to vote. This one was a lot darker than the first. I‘ve never heard of this day meant to encourage people to register to vote. This was more educational, I felt, than the first which focused more of John‘s upbringing into the civil rights movement. above is a stark reminder of where we are now. Nice insert of Obama‘s inauguration, thanking John for all he did

The second installment picks up with the Freedom Riders and finishes with the March on Washington. I think I found this even more engrossing than the first installment. I‘m excited to read the third and final book within the next few weeks - 5/5.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Where Book One showed us the very beginnings of John Lewis‘s activism & the sit-ins in Nashville, Book Two follows him through his time with the Freedom Riders and the March on Washington with Dr. King.I said it in my review of Book One, but it‘s just incredible to me the example Lewis left of ways to practice civil disobedience & full nonviolence.His courage & the way he used his voice are humbling. If you haven‘t read these, please do.

Would‘ve hit hard no matter what, but reading it after Lewis‘s passing made it so much more poignant, esp b/c we‘re STILL fighting for the same ideals he nearly gave his life for decades ago. This is a painful read, brutality & cruelty is on full clear display. But so is the bravery & power of Lewis & others in the CRM. If you want to be on the right side of history, that means being on John Lewis‘s side. Phenomenal read, eager for the 3rd. 5/5 ⭐️

I‘d ordered this back in May from a Black-owned indie bookstore, and because of the massive influx of orders a lot of those stores received around that time, it was delayed a while (which I completely understood, of course.) It happened to arrive a few days ago...and last night we lost Rep. John Lewis. I know this volume gets very heavy, but it‘s the right time to read it. Rest in power, sir 💔 #nowreading

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lewis and the Nashville Student Movement continued their progress. The Freedom Riders headed to Alabama. Very aggressive and violent times ensued, yet the nonviolent protests persisted. The graphic memoir format is a powerful and interesting way to learn about this tumultuous time in US history. On to book three!

Just as good as Book 1, but more difficult to read. It doesn't flinch from the violence that the protesters were met with. In this one, President Obama's inauguration day becomes less a frame story and more a series of interludes to break up the horrific violence of the main story and remind the reader that there is still hope.

Finished Book Two over breakfast this morning, Maya is still reading it. This volume gets deep into some of the most violent moments during the Civil Rights era. I have such a profound and deep respect for resistors like John Lewis who stood firm on their principles of civil disobedience and nonviolence in the face of such despicable acts of violence against them.

I wish I‘d read book two closer to book one, because I lost track of some of the people, but still made it through in one sitting. It‘s an easy read while also a very difficult one. I cried a few times, because it‘s excruciating to see what so many suffered so recently that should have been resolved so long ago. And in so many ways we‘re still fighting the same fight.

Book 3 of the year.

I enjoyed this history lesson but it hurt my heart😢
To know all that was endured so that I can vote, be equal and be treated fairly....I applaud Mr. Lewis for bringing his history to us.
The book is an easy read. It was hard not to read in one sitting....it really pulls you in to what was happening. Looking forward book 3 and to see this on the screen soon.

I absolutely love with my books complement one another. In this case, it‘s so interesting to see the same events through two different lenses, and to see many of the same people portrayed. In particular: Bayard Rustin, Philip Randolph, John Farmer, and of course John Lewis and Malcolm X.

#ReadingBlackout

Tamra I am looking for a good MalcolmX biography because I am not as familiar with his story. Is this it? Did you read these two simultaneously? I haven‘t purchased March yet! (edited) 5y
Tamra Your post also reminds me of Baldwin‘s unfinished literary project. I wish he had because it likely would have been so insightful. 5y
cocomass @Tamra this is an excellent biography, and even more interesting if you‘ve also read his autobiography, which is less academic/extremely engaging and is probably a good intro to the man himself in his own words. 5y

Even more powerful than the first volume. The freedom rides, the protests, the arrests, the time spent in jail - it all reminds me of something out of the New Testament. Serious, you need to read these books. Sometimes this era seems like history, but we keep being reminded of how little some things have changed, which is both horrifying and heartbreaking.

Next up: Book Three
