In celebration of MLK Day, Michigan State University Libraries and Capital Area District Libraries present a panel discussion on the graphic memoir March: Book One by the late US Representative John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, illustrated by Nate Powell. The panel will include activists, artists, teachers, students and scholars.
"March is a vivid first-hand account of Lewis's lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis's personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement. Book One spans his youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall."
