March is the three volume graphic novel of John Lewis’ account of his experiences in the civil rights movement. Very powerful and very well done. The final volume won the National Book Award, the first graphic novel to do so. (Art Spiegelman’s Maus was the first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer.)
It was strange to be finishing the final volume at the same time Nazis were marching in Charlottesville VA [August 12, 2017]. Rereading “Violence does beget violence, but the opposite is just as true. Fury spends itself pretty quickly when there’s no fury facing it” is useful to me in days like these.
