March: Book Three: 09/22/21
March: Book Three by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell is the conclusion of the graphic novel trilogy that covers John Lewis's participation in the Civil Rights movement. This book is the most violent and most heart-wrenching of the three.
The book opens with a bombing in Birmingham and the death of three girls. From the dates listed those who know their history will know what's coming. For readers first learning this history, they will be in for a rough ride.
Where the first two were released midway through President Obama's second term, this volume was released at the end. There is still a sense of hope that things will continue on the progressive path with a Clinton win. Reading this five years later the violence and protests depicted take on new meaning, new urgency.
