March: book Three
In my evaluation of March: book Two, I noted that John Lewis’s graphic book autobiography is “a phenomenon powered by passion: the enthusiasm of one guy who dedicated himself steadfastly to a much better world, as well as the enthusiasm of the team showing why his story is much more resonant than ever.”

The young activist’s vision of a much better future is threatened by white supremacists, the assassination of president Kennedy, as well as prohibitive voting limitations across the country.
