March: Book Two: 05/24/18
March: Book Two by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell (illustrator) covers the actions of the Freedom Riders who attempted to ride busses from Washington D.C. down to points in the South to test the compliance with the Supreme Court's ruling to desegregate interstate busses.
Riders, such as author John Lewis, faced arrests, beatings, the threat of lynchings, and firebombing of the busses. Busses were often stopped at state lines, refused passage, refused maintenance or gas, or delayed until riders gave up.
I dare you to read this graphic novel and not get angry. I dare you to not go through every negative emotion. I dare you to not think about today's environment and get angry again, keeping in mind that the book was published at a time of hopefulness.
Book three rounds out the trilogy and I will be reading and reviewing it soon.
