3 of 3. Conclusion was Selma Bridge. Bloody Sunday. Of which I feel I‘ve learned more about here than anywhere else. Now I feel I understand the march. Very informative and historic set told by someone who was there. Who believed so hard in equality he was arrested and beaten almost to death multiple times. This moment here had me in tears after reading John‘s pilgrimage. This was so well written, for anyone to understand.
Make good trouble.

Hard to read but so important and so well-told and drawn. John Lewis and all the people who helped him in the civil rights movement are heroes.

blurb

March: Book Three | Andrew Aydin, John Lewis

The tone in march would be angry because in the book it says that “ We‘ve she‘d too much blood we‘ve come too far to back down now “ so we can infer that they worked day and night to get where there at now and get there voices heard and out there what would be the point to waste it all now and the mood I wound say be sad because it‘s really unfair how there getting treated just because of there skin color . @TheMrsShaw

quote

March: Book Three | Andrew Aydin, John Lewis

The literally meaning of “ March “ means walk in a military manner with a regular measured tread. but in the book i‘m reading “ March “ means how black native Americans have to fight for there freedom and they come across serious obstacles that they have to face together and they are tired of being treated like a animal so decide to start a march

Reread this one in preparation for Run: Book One. Loved it just as much as the first time. John Lewis was an incredible leader. This was my August #BookSpin pick.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I am consistently blown away that John Lewis& I were alive at the same time, how recent the Civil Rights Movement was. And, frustratingly, how timely so much of this book still feels. This book encompasses the couple of years leading up to Bloody Sunday in Selma, AL, &it was difficult to read & beautifully done. There is so much history here that I didn‘t know, & I am grateful that Rep. Lewis took the time to spell it out for all of us.

SamAnne I keep meaning to get to this. 2y

I took so many pictures of so many panels with the intent of sharing them with you Littens, but really I just can't recommend March: Book Three enough! I gave it a full, enthusiastic 5 star rating on Goodreads. Please do yourself a favor and pick this one up, you won't regret it! 💌

Honestly, this installment is the most powerful. But I've also had to take a break while reading because it has broken my heart to see how far we still have to go just to recognize that #blacklivesmatter.

"In many ways, Fannie Lou Hamer became the SOUL of the Mississippi movement."

So many people who came before us gave their blood, sweat and tears to be treated equally under the law. In light of the GOPs recent attempts to restrict voting rights, we must remember who exactly they're attempting to disenfranchise. Their 'argument' is steeped in racism and is one activists have been fighting for decades.

Since it's Black History Month, I thought I'd share some of the more powerful panels in the third installment of Rep. John Lewis' March trilogy, based on his personal involvement in the Civil Rights Movement.

This panel references the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing.

"Four little children murdered in the house of the Lord- how could our quest for human dignity spawn such evil?"

Never a more poignant time to read this series. Massive wins in Georgia, as two Democrats win their run-off elections. Meanwhile, white supremacists storm the capitol - encouraged by the words of our current president - in an effort to stage a coup.

Horrifying to see the violent racists in this book & know there‘s not a dime‘s worth of difference b/t them & the violent racists marauding today w/full-throated endorsement of a racist president. This final volume drives home the depths of depravity in which segregationists wallowed, & the bravery & fortitude of the CRM. Bit too long & focused on internal politics. But still brilliant & crucial. & once again: Diane Nash is fucking hardcore 4/5 ⭐️

I don't have anything particularly eloquent to add to the many eulogies for Rep. John Lewis today, but the March trilogy is easily the best nonfiction I've read this year. It was an honor to read his words. Rest in power, sir.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The final leg of John Lewis‘s civil rights battle was tumultuous and often violent, yet they admirably continued to protest in peace. What he and other unflinching activists helped achieve was just ... well, there are no words to articulate it properly. This is a difficult, very powerful graphic memoir series. History in this format is just brilliant! #nationalbookaward

DakotaWilde I just finished the second one and am loving this. I need to buy them for my kids to read. 3y
britt_brooke @AJBowers Yes! I‘m keeping them so my boys can read them in a couple of years. Honestly, my second grader could read them now. They‘ve learned about a lot of it at school. He told me about “Bloody Sunday” before I knew what it was (my history sucks sometimes). I am blown away with the major focus on civil rights at our school. It‘s amazing. 💚 (edited) 3y

I read four books in February (well, technically three books and a magazine). All picks this time. March Book 3 edges out the win for my favorite book of the month - it's an excellent conclusion to the trilogy and just an incredibly well-done comic. But I'd recommend any of the four if they sound good to you. #FebruaryWrapUp #MonthlyWrapUp

Wow. This whole series is a triumph. It's well written, beautifully illustrated, moving, and personal. We are so fortunate that Representative Lewis shared these memories with the world this way. And especially young people today are fortunate to have these texts about the Civil Rights movement - such a powerful contrast to the dull, anodyne way I remember being taught about it when I was in school.

A stunning conclusion to the March trilogy. This one covers the time period from the Birmingham church bombing to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

These books are a gift, and I am grateful to John Lewis for sharing his memories and experiences. A difficult read at any time, even more so under the shadow of the Charlottesville Unite the Right White supremacist rally, rollbacks to the 🗳 Rights Act, and the current POTUS.🤮 #nonfiction2020

I've reached the section in the March Trilogy that takes place during the 1964 DNC. I now have a much better understanding of the context of this famous quote from Fannie Lou Hamer that I have seen many times over the years.

Holding this book recommendation in my back pocket the next time I hear another parent complain about kids reading graphic novels instead of “real“ books.

Barack Obama. John Lewis. I‘m reading March and am now on Book Three. I‘m saddened and feeling shamed by the little progress if any my own nation has made since the racism, hatred, voter suppression, gender inequality, and name-calling of the 1960s. I strongly recommend all three books of this graphic novel series.

Nonfiction. This is a series that I would definitely love to read. It tells of some of the most important events in America‘s recent history as told by a man who was there and saw it all and who was integral in the movement. This book would be perfect for fourth grade up I think and perfect for anyone who likes history but needs the engaging factor of images to help them get hooked. These images will certainly hook any reader.

March: Book Three by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and illustrated by Nate Powell. The third in a nonfiction graphic novel series, this book tells of the lead up and effects of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. It‘s a powerful telling of the events that pulls you in to 1963 and into the march rather than just telling you about it. It‘s beautiful, it‘s powerful, and it‘s important.

The best of the trilogy, and that‘s saying something. These are my favorite graphic novels. This really enlivens history. It‘s amazing to me, and heartbreaking and enraging, that all of this happened so recently. I wish these books had been around when I was in high school studying US history.

These books go quickly but linger long after they‘re done.
