Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon, one of the key figures
of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has
taken him from an Alabama sharecropper's farm to the halls of Congress, from a
segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving
beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first
African-American president.

Now, to share his remarkable story with new
generations, Lewis presents March, a graphic novel trilogy, in collaboration
with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times best-selling artist Nate Powell
(winner of the Eisner Award and LA Times Book Prize finalist for Swallow Me
Whole).

March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong
struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the
distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis'
personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil
rights movement.

Book One spans John Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his
life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville
Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent
lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City
Hall.

Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew
inspiration from the 1958 comic book "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery
Story." Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience,
testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for
generations.
