    This was the last book I read in 2016, and it was an excellent way to end my reading year. The March books are comics about Congressman John Lewis' experiences during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s. This third volume opens with the September 1963 bombing of an African-Ameri...

    This story is absolutely 5 stars, but the storytelling felt a little sloppy in this volume. I had to check that I hadn't skipped a page several times because information would be introduced and suddenly dropped. I can understand that there are many tidbits Lewis would want to include t...

    Wow, this series is so powerful. I honestly can't imagine facing down so much violence. The story in these pages is about standing up to a system and saying we are part of this country and we demand to be included. This is one of the most powerful stories I have seen told. This series ...

    This graphic novel series is so, so, so good. I wish Rep. John Lewis would write more of them ...

    March, Book Three, masterfully completes the trilogy, but perhaps because of its awards and popularity and its timeliness, maybe they will just go on with the project. 7 years of work, well spent for historians and comics lovers. So put this series on your list. March, designed maybe p...

    The grand finale of the March Trilogy by John Lewis. My heart is full. But let's get to the things that March: Book Three taught me: 1) The tension between Martin Luther King and the younger leaders of the movement thickens as the Baptists Church in Birmingham was bombed in Septemb...

    Books 1 and 2 were 5 star reads for me. Book 3 took it to another level! Spectacular!! A very well done series. 5+ Stars Read the dead tree version. ...

    So this is the book that won the National Book Award for Young People?s Literature in 2016. And it is a winner in every sense. The trilogy together gets under one?s skin. It has very little black/white discussion about it, which is exactly as it should be. The marches in Alabama an...

    "We MUST have the right to VOTE. We MUST have EQUAL PROTECTION under the law, and an END to POLICE BRUTALITY." Not much has changed since 1965, when blacks (and some progressive whites) marched all over the south, from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Speeches were made, laws ...

    I teared up so many times reading this final installment of the March series. The first book felt more like necessary background information, albeit well-told and beautifully illustrated. The second was significantly more complex, and this third one doesn't let up. So much tragedy, and...

    I swear I?m not doing this to be ?contrarian? or any of that bullshit, I?m just being honest. Don?t take my less-than-stellar rating to mean that I?m racist and against equal rights or think little of the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. I know most of you aren?t tha...

    Most of this volume encompasses the events in Selma, Alabama, that led to legislation to enforce an amendment of the Constitution. Let that sink in as to why the legislation was necessary. Why it could be achieved only after much bloodshed is one of those sad, (almost) unanswerable, qu...

    Not smoothly written, but this series of graphic novels is a remarkable document of an immense courage and persistence of fighters for civil rights. Especially hard to read now, when white nationalists and racists are gaining power and popularity. ...

    Recently I made a vow to cut way down on my library checkouts, but when I saw the boxed set of the March trilogy at a branch near my house, I just couldn't resist. Still, immediately after I took it out, I experienced borrower's remorse. Had I bit off more than I could chew? The slipco...

    What can I say? A 5-star trifecta for the trilogy! I don't generally discuss politics here (unless it's the governing of a fantasy land!!).... But it adds context to Lewis' stand on Trump, and his refusal to attend the inauguration. And I applaud him for staying true to himself d...

    I'm late to the party on this one because I was waiting for them to come out with one comprehensive volume. This may or may not have happened yet, but the library doesn't have it if it does exist. I started to feel an urgency to read it, and since all three volumes are out, decided tha...

    Wow. This series blew me away. It should be required reading in every high school class. It does an amazing job of personalizing the Civil Rights movement and making it more than just a series of names and dates, but a real struggle, a nonviolent revolution that cost people their lives...

    The March trilogy is a testament to how far we've come & what we face in the present. John Lewis has spent his life fighting for the rights of the oppressed & continues to till this very day. So many people both black & white died in the fight to get civil rights. They we'r...

    March: Book Three is the most decorated book of the 2017 literary awards season, and I'll start by saying it deserves every accolade. It's almost overwhelming, though, how much there is to process. For one thing, the echoes of the current political climate, and, in particular, t...

    It was the evening before the inauguration, and I was looking for something to read, something that would fortify me against the dark rhetoric of soon-to-be president Trump. I decided on March 3, the final volume of Congressman John Lewis? graphic autobiographical account of the ci...

    "Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it." George Santayana "The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun In The March Trilogy, John Lewis has given us the gift of his memory and his experience. It is an invaluable, accessible r...

    "But even if we pass this bill, the battle will not be over. What happened in Selma is part of a far larger movement, which reaches into every section and state of America. It is the effort of American Negroes to secure for themselves the full blessings of American life. Their cau...

    "How could our quest for simple human dignity spawn such evil?" This was such a hard one to read. I had to put the book down for a while. It begins with the 1963 Birmingham church bombing. People are beaten with sticks and fists. Civil Rights workers are killed. And the face...

    This was the last book I read in 2016, and it was an excellent way to end my reading year. The March books are comics about Congressman John Lewis' experiences during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s. This third volume opens with the September 1963 bombing of an African-Ameri...

    This story is absolutely 5 stars, but the storytelling felt a little sloppy in this volume. I had to check that I hadn't skipped a page several times because information would be introduced and suddenly dropped. I can understand that there are many tidbits Lewis would want to include t...

    Wow, this series is so powerful. I honestly can't imagine facing down so much violence. The story in these pages is about standing up to a system and saying we are part of this country and we demand to be included. This is one of the most powerful stories I have seen told. This series ...

    This graphic novel series is so, so, so good. I wish Rep. John Lewis would write more of them ...

    March, Book Three, masterfully completes the trilogy, but perhaps because of its awards and popularity and its timeliness, maybe they will just go on with the project. 7 years of work, well spent for historians and comics lovers. So put this series on your list. March, designed maybe p...

    I have been reading through all the National Book nominees for Young People?s Literature, and March, Book 3 is a worthy, stunning graphic novel that everyone should read. The March series begins with a scene in John Lewis? congressional office, on the day of Barack Obama?s inaugu...

    The grand finale of the March Trilogy by John Lewis. My heart is full. But let's get to the things that March: Book Three taught me: 1) The tension between Martin Luther King and the younger leaders of the movement thickens as the Baptists Church in Birmingham was bombed in Septemb...

    Books 1 and 2 were 5 star reads for me. Book 3 took it to another level! Spectacular!! A very well done series. 5+ Stars Read the dead tree version. ...

    So this is the book that won the National Book Award for Young People?s Literature in 2016. And it is a winner in every sense. The trilogy together gets under one?s skin. It has very little black/white discussion about it, which is exactly as it should be. The marches in Alabama an...

    "We MUST have the right to VOTE. We MUST have EQUAL PROTECTION under the law, and an END to POLICE BRUTALITY." Not much has changed since 1965, when blacks (and some progressive whites) marched all over the south, from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Speeches were made, laws ...

    I teared up so many times reading this final installment of the March series. The first book felt more like necessary background information, albeit well-told and beautifully illustrated. The second was significantly more complex, and this third one doesn't let up. So much tragedy, and...

    I swear I?m not doing this to be ?contrarian? or any of that bullshit, I?m just being honest. Don?t take my less-than-stellar rating to mean that I?m racist and against equal rights or think little of the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. I know most of you aren?t tha...

    Most of this volume encompasses the events in Selma, Alabama, that led to legislation to enforce an amendment of the Constitution. Let that sink in as to why the legislation was necessary. Why it could be achieved only after much bloodshed is one of those sad, (almost) unanswerable, qu...

    Not smoothly written, but this series of graphic novels is a remarkable document of an immense courage and persistence of fighters for civil rights. Especially hard to read now, when white nationalists and racists are gaining power and popularity. ...

    Recently I made a vow to cut way down on my library checkouts, but when I saw the boxed set of the March trilogy at a branch near my house, I just couldn't resist. Still, immediately after I took it out, I experienced borrower's remorse. Had I bit off more than I could chew? The slipco...

    What can I say? A 5-star trifecta for the trilogy! I don't generally discuss politics here (unless it's the governing of a fantasy land!!).... But it adds context to Lewis' stand on Trump, and his refusal to attend the inauguration. And I applaud him for staying true to himself d...

    I'm late to the party on this one because I was waiting for them to come out with one comprehensive volume. This may or may not have happened yet, but the library doesn't have it if it does exist. I started to feel an urgency to read it, and since all three volumes are out, decided tha...

    Wow. This series blew me away. It should be required reading in every high school class. It does an amazing job of personalizing the Civil Rights movement and making it more than just a series of names and dates, but a real struggle, a nonviolent revolution that cost people their lives...

    The March trilogy is a testament to how far we've come & what we face in the present. John Lewis has spent his life fighting for the rights of the oppressed & continues to till this very day. So many people both black & white died in the fight to get civil rights. They we'r...

    March: Book Three is the most decorated book of the 2017 literary awards season, and I'll start by saying it deserves every accolade. It's almost overwhelming, though, how much there is to process. For one thing, the echoes of the current political climate, and, in particular, t...

    Trigger warnings: violence, murder, police brutality, racism, racial slurs. Holy wow. The previous two books in this trilogy were outstanding, but this was a cut above. The juxtaposition between the apparent hopelessness the civil rights movement was up against in Mississippi and Al...

    It's heartbreaking to read this trilogy in the wake of the basically total dismantling of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Too many hard-won victories from the Civil Rights movement have been forgotten. On the other hand, it is clear that the racist effort in this country is a long o...

    Like reading fire. I was skeptical about this series. I was an idiot. Every American and all American middle/high school history students should read it. The events recounted are as important as the American Revolution itself. Thanks to John Lewis and his able collaborators for all thr...

    What a humbling, hopeful, and unbelievably timely trilogy this is. John Lewis is an American hero, and what?s most amazing to me is that he refuses to quit. In the face of opposition, he keeps going. Even within the last year, he was literally ?sitting in? on the floor of the Hou...

    There is so much in this last installment of John Lewis' March series. This book opens with a BOOM, the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four young girls as they sat in Sunday School. Lewis continues to focus on voting rights. I still remember vividly the day that P...

    I have been reading through all the National Book nominees for Young People?s Literature, and March, Book 3 is a worthy, stunning graphic novel that everyone should read. The March series begins with a scene in John Lewis? congressional office, on the day of Barack Obama?s inaugu...

    The grand finale of the March Trilogy by John Lewis. My heart is full. But let's get to the things that March: Book Three taught me: 1) The tension between Martin Luther King and the younger leaders of the movement thickens as the Baptists Church in Birmingham was bombed in Septemb...

    Books 1 and 2 were 5 star reads for me. Book 3 took it to another level! Spectacular!! A very well done series. 5+ Stars Read the dead tree version. ...

    So this is the book that won the National Book Award for Young People?s Literature in 2016. And it is a winner in every sense. The trilogy together gets under one?s skin. It has very little black/white discussion about it, which is exactly as it should be. The marches in Alabama an...

    "We MUST have the right to VOTE. We MUST have EQUAL PROTECTION under the law, and an END to POLICE BRUTALITY." Not much has changed since 1965, when blacks (and some progressive whites) marched all over the south, from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Speeches were made, laws ...

    I teared up so many times reading this final installment of the March series. The first book felt more like necessary background information, albeit well-told and beautifully illustrated. The second was significantly more complex, and this third one doesn't let up. So much tragedy, and...

    I swear I?m not doing this to be ?contrarian? or any of that bullshit, I?m just being honest. Don?t take my less-than-stellar rating to mean that I?m racist and against equal rights or think little of the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. I know most of you aren?t tha...

    Most of this volume encompasses the events in Selma, Alabama, that led to legislation to enforce an amendment of the Constitution. Let that sink in as to why the legislation was necessary. Why it could be achieved only after much bloodshed is one of those sad, (almost) unanswerable, qu...

    Not smoothly written, but this series of graphic novels is a remarkable document of an immense courage and persistence of fighters for civil rights. Especially hard to read now, when white nationalists and racists are gaining power and popularity. ...

    Recently I made a vow to cut way down on my library checkouts, but when I saw the boxed set of the March trilogy at a branch near my house, I just couldn't resist. Still, immediately after I took it out, I experienced borrower's remorse. Had I bit off more than I could chew? The slipco...

    What can I say? A 5-star trifecta for the trilogy! I don't generally discuss politics here (unless it's the governing of a fantasy land!!).... But it adds context to Lewis' stand on Trump, and his refusal to attend the inauguration. And I applaud him for staying true to himself d...

    I'm late to the party on this one because I was waiting for them to come out with one comprehensive volume. This may or may not have happened yet, but the library doesn't have it if it does exist. I started to feel an urgency to read it, and since all three volumes are out, decided tha...

    Wow. This series blew me away. It should be required reading in every high school class. It does an amazing job of personalizing the Civil Rights movement and making it more than just a series of names and dates, but a real struggle, a nonviolent revolution that cost people their lives...

    Books 1 and 2 were 5 star reads for me. Book 3 took it to another level! Spectacular!! A very well done series. 5+ Stars Read the dead tree version. ...

    So this is the book that won the National Book Award for Young People?s Literature in 2016. And it is a winner in every sense. The trilogy together gets under one?s skin. It has very little black/white discussion about it, which is exactly as it should be. The marches in Alabama an...

    "We MUST have the right to VOTE. We MUST have EQUAL PROTECTION under the law, and an END to POLICE BRUTALITY." Not much has changed since 1965, when blacks (and some progressive whites) marched all over the south, from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Speeches were made, laws ...

    I teared up so many times reading this final installment of the March series. The first book felt more like necessary background information, albeit well-told and beautifully illustrated. The second was significantly more complex, and this third one doesn't let up. So much tragedy, and...

    I swear I?m not doing this to be ?contrarian? or any of that bullshit, I?m just being honest. Don?t take my less-than-stellar rating to mean that I?m racist and against equal rights or think little of the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. I know most of you aren?t tha...

    Most of this volume encompasses the events in Selma, Alabama, that led to legislation to enforce an amendment of the Constitution. Let that sink in as to why the legislation was necessary. Why it could be achieved only after much bloodshed is one of those sad, (almost) unanswerable, qu...

    Not smoothly written, but this series of graphic novels is a remarkable document of an immense courage and persistence of fighters for civil rights. Especially hard to read now, when white nationalists and racists are gaining power and popularity. ...

    Recently I made a vow to cut way down on my library checkouts, but when I saw the boxed set of the March trilogy at a branch near my house, I just couldn't resist. Still, immediately after I took it out, I experienced borrower's remorse. Had I bit off more than I could chew? The slipco...

    What can I say? A 5-star trifecta for the trilogy! I don't generally discuss politics here (unless it's the governing of a fantasy land!!).... But it adds context to Lewis' stand on Trump, and his refusal to attend the inauguration. And I applaud him for staying true to himself d...

    March: Book Three is the most decorated book of the 2017 literary awards season, and I'll start by saying it deserves every accolade. It's almost overwhelming, though, how much there is to process. For one thing, the echoes of the current political climate, and, in particular, t...

    Trigger warnings: violence, murder, police brutality, racism, racial slurs. Holy wow. The previous two books in this trilogy were outstanding, but this was a cut above. The juxtaposition between the apparent hopelessness the civil rights movement was up against in Mississippi and Al...

    It's heartbreaking to read this trilogy in the wake of the basically total dismantling of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Too many hard-won victories from the Civil Rights movement have been forgotten. On the other hand, it is clear that the racist effort in this country is a long o...

    Like reading fire. I was skeptical about this series. I was an idiot. Every American and all American middle/high school history students should read it. The events recounted are as important as the American Revolution itself. Thanks to John Lewis and his able collaborators for all thr...

    What a humbling, hopeful, and unbelievably timely trilogy this is. John Lewis is an American hero, and what?s most amazing to me is that he refuses to quit. In the face of opposition, he keeps going. Even within the last year, he was literally ?sitting in? on the floor of the Hou...

    There is so much in this last installment of John Lewis' March series. This book opens with a BOOM, the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four young girls as they sat in Sunday School. Lewis continues to focus on voting rights. I still remember vividly the day that P...

    This whole series is brilliant and moving and, at times, really hard to read. In the same way televised images of beatings and police taking a firehose to protestors changed public sentiment regarding the Civil Rights movement, John Lewis' story, told in graphic form, is more effective...
