and violence is erupting all over the South.The Freedom Riders board buses in the South in the 1960s, to fight for the right to be recognized as human, but what is human anyway, if a human can turn a fire hose on children at a nonviolent protest and then set a pack of killer police dogs on them As far as I m concerned, there s behavior toward humans that happened in the U.S during this struggle for civil rights that makes me want to crawl into a cave and scrawl on the walls with my own fingernails Still, all people crave the innate desire to be validated and recognized as worthy, as human, and all people should be, even if being human still has a long way to go.This graphic novel is graphic at times, and so is our human behavior You may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I ll rise Maya Angelou This second volume in the graphic biography of civil rights stalwart John Lewis begins with the Freedom Riders and Parchman Farm and ends with the March on Washington and the fatal bombing of Birmingham s Sixteenth Avenue Baptist Church Just as in the first volume, the stark black and white illustrations complement the somber and often disturbing events, but now, as the atmosphere becomes darker andintense, the illustrations becomecinematic,ominous.In addition to the powerful This second volume in the graphic biography of civil rights stalwart John Lewis begins with the Freedom Riders and Parchman Farm and ends with the March on Washington and the fatal bombing of Birmingham s Sixteenth Avenue Baptist Church Just as in the first volume, the stark black and white illustrations complement the somber and often disturbing events, but now, as the atmosphere becomes darker andintense, the illustrations becomecinematic,ominous.In addition to the powerful portrayal of the dramatic events, I like the way the narrative includes realistic details of compromise and weakness MLK s refusal to join the Freedom Riders by saying he wishes to chooses his own Golgotha and then being mocked as De Lawd, Stokely Carmichael s dangerous intransigence, the March on Washington s reluctance to accept the services of accomplished organizer Bayard Rustin because he was was openly gay, and Lewis himself frustrated by demands that he alter his speech until he is persuaded by his idol A Phillip Randolph And as before, we see all the great turmoil and petty trials of the past framed by the story of Barack Obama s first inauguration.This is both a great graphic narrative and an accessible and accurate history of a crucial period in American history, a time filled with bravery and heroes You should buy it and read it Come to think of it, buy all three volumes, and give them to a young person you love Wow, book two in the March series was evenpowerful than book one The March graphic novels are based on Congressman John Lewis memories of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s This

PBS documentary Freedom Riders It is truly amazing what nonviolent protests have been able to accomplish I highly recommend the March graphic novels for anyone interested in the Civil Rights Movement P.S The box set of the March trilogy is just beautiful, and I think it will make a great Christmas present It s a gift that educates and inspires Favorite Quote It s difficult to understand the position of oppressed people Ours is a way OUT creative, moral and nonviolent It is NOT tied to black supremacy or communism, but to the plight of the oppressed It can save the soul of America Martin Luther King, talking to Attorney General Robert Kennedy I simply cannot imagine having to face the brutality these people faced in the south The ugliness on display in places like AL, MS and TN is horrific The men and women using non violence as a protest are amazing people and this story has power I admit, I didn t know much of who John Lewis was until this series This is his account of the civil rights revolution A revolution that never completely finished People want to think it s fair and equal, but yet it s not Our system is still stacked I simply cannot imagine having to face the brutality these people faced in the south The ugliness on display in places like AL, MS and TN is horrific The men and women using non violence as a protest are amazing people and this story has power I admit, I didn t know much of who John Lewis was until this series This is his account of the civil rights revolution A revolution that never completely finished People want to think it s fair and equal, but yet it s not Our system is still stacked against the poor and people of color I m so glad these novels have been published They tell an important story of our history What a shame that it is still a struggle for all people of the US to have the promises of the American revolution Right now, at this moment, there are groups doing their best to purge voter rolls and keep a certain type of person from voting, mostly people who will vote the party of power out I can t imagine the violence that happened during this time It boggles my mind that people would bomb churches and kill and maim people for trying to change society We are seeing the repercussions from this time period We took a step forward and it looks as if we might be taking a violent step back This violence and civil unrest will surface again if people don t feel like they can live equal and free John Lewis gave a powerful speech at the march on Washington I don t know if I have ever heard it before, but it s still relevant today I mostly know Dr King s speech, which is one of my favorites in history I m glad things have changed, but they need to keep changing We can t let the country fail it s citizen s We are facing some serious times ahead Our country is so divided, I don t know if we can come back together We have racial problems, we have class problems, we have environmental problems, we have violence problems and we have truth problems These are huge issues and the next generation will have to deal with them at some point They won t be denied We need to be able to come together to deal with them It s going to be a rocky future is my fear When there is almost half the country that can t even admit truth is truth how do we even go forward I saw a college facebook friend comment on a status update that slavery was not bad and they Hollywood made up all the horrible treatment that went on They were treated with care and like family How does someone in my generation really believe such utter crap I watched Roots, didn t she This books shows the hatred humans can show one another It is the sad side of human nature.As tough as this book is, it also gives me hope These stories show people facing great violence and a threat to their very lives People died all around them and in all that, they had faith and love Somehow, they kept their faith They knew there was a better world they could create They sacrificed for a better world So in all that happens now, I hope I can continue to have faith, even while it feels the cards are stacked against a better tomorrow I will certainly read the 3rd volume I think it is the last one I want to finish the story It is something to have John Lewis watch Barack Obama sworn into office It gives me goosebumps to think about the meaning of that for all the people who gave their life to see that possibility happen I think Love is the only way forward It will be difficult love as loving people who seem out to destroy your world is truly tough I see faith as the only way forward We have to love one another to heal the wounds in our country Listening is a powerful tool and I think it s time our nation begin to listen to both sides Both sides have hurts, real or imagined, doesn t matter Thank you John Lewis for all your sacrifices in making this a better world and for giving us this account of your life It has touched me and I pray no other generation will have to experience this level of violence and humiliation
