Congressman John Lewis: The March for Civil Rights

September 17, 2013

Kids and adults alike will have the special opportunity of engaging with civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis introduce March: Book One—the first in a graphic novel trilogy that shares Congressman Lewis’ remarkable story with new generations. Book One spans Lewis’ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their fight against segregation through nonviolent activism. A keynote speaker at the historic March on Washington in 1963, and a Medal of Freedom recipient from President Obama, Congressman Lewis will also explore today’s constitutional questions related to equal rights.
