Review of "March: Book One," by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell

 Review of

March: Book One, by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell

Five out of five stars

Major historical event described in a comic

 There were many major events in the civil rights movement in the United States and arguably the most significant was the march at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965. The march was led by John Lewis and the vicious attack by police officers shocked the nation and galvanized people that were formerly unsympathetic into supporting the civil rights movement.

 This comic is the first in a series of comics that depict the early years of civil rights icon John Lewis and the planning and negotiations that led to that famous event. It is an excellent depiction of an event where the participants truly suffered for a cause they believed in. It could be used in history classes as a reference material on the event and a description of true heroism.
