NPR stories about John Lewis
John Lewis is a congressman from Georgia, a pillar of the civil rights movement and an author. Add to that resume something slightly less expected — comic book writer. Lewis is getting ready to release March, the new graphic novel of his life.
Congressman John Lewis has co-authored a new graphic novel about the 1963 March on Washington, which he helped plan. Reviewer Jody Arlington says March: Book One is a "fresh and sometimes shocking work," with a message of reconciliation and hope that still resonates.
