Summary
Welcome to the stunning conclusion of the award-winning and best-selling MARCH trilogy. Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the keyfigures of the civil rights movement, joins co-writer Andrew Aydin and artistNate Powell to bring the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation,urgently relevant for today's world.By the fall of 1963, the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into theAmerican consciousness, and as chairman of the Student Nonviolent CoordinatingCommittee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless directaction, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatantinjustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crowstrikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The onlyhope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silencedby voter suppression: "One Man, One Vote."To carry out their nonviolent revolution, Lewis and an army of youngactivists launch a series of innovative campaigns, including the Freedom Vote,Mississippi Freedom Summer, and an all-out battle for the soul of the DemocraticParty waged live on national television.With these new struggles come new allies, new opponents, and anunpredictable new president who might be both at once. But fractures within themovement are deepening ... even as 25-year-old John Lewis prepares to riskeverything in a historic showdown high above the Alabama river, in a town called Selma
