About the book

March: Book Three

March: Book Three, book cover, by Congressmen John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
ISBN 9781603094023 Top Shelf Productions / IDW Publishing

By the fall of 1963, the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into the American consciousness, and as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless direct action, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatant injustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crow strikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The only hope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silenced by voter suppression: “One Man, One Vote.” More about this book >
