March (Book One) by John Robert Lewis
This is a great adaptation and an early introduction to the Civil Rights Movements. This is part one on the life story of John Lewis that covers from his childhood to being on the frontier in Nashville's Restaurant sit-in.
This graphic novel is essentially a timeline on how much change has been brought to light since the 1950s to now. The book introduces to Jerry Lewis getting ready to attend his office because his family is waiting for him as they attend to the Inauguration of Barack Obama.
Since I've been an avid follower in the civil rights movement and reading Dr. Martin Luther Kings Jr. Letter from Birmingham Jail, it is refreshing capturing early introductions to important people that are crucial to the movement and even though it is the first book of a series, I hope they get more detailed on certain organizations and movements.
The illustration is phenomenal and while reading this on my kindle, I literally felt that certain images would pop out from the screen like a telephone ringing or Dr. King giving his sermon. I cannot wait for the rest of series to be published.
