Making Laws

Civil Rights Graphic Novel: MARCH Book One
The Washington Post details the story of how this graphic civil rights graphic novel came to be published.  One of the authors, Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), was a witness to history. At age 74 he knows the story intimately, and he knows that a graphic novel holds unique storytelling powers.

Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) was often called “one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced.” He has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls “The Beloved Community” in America. His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won him the admiration of many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress.
