Book ThreeBook - 2016
From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: The sheer level of state-sponsored violence against African-Americans is pretty terrifying. Of course, this all actually happened, which is terrible in itself.
Violence: Accurately depicts violence used against Civil Rights leaders and protesters.
SummaryAdd a Summary
March: Book Three opens where March: Book Two left off, with the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama on September 15, 1963. The third volume is by far the longest in the trilogy, and has the most ground to cover, not necessarily in terms of time, but in terms of significant events in the civil rights movement, when participation and media attention gained critical mass. This installment includes the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Malcom X, the Freedom Summer voter registration project, the Selma march, and the passage of the Civil Rights Bill and the Voting Rights Act. The frame narrative that anchored the first volume has mostly slipped away, with only occasional references back to the inauguration of Barack Obama. It concludes on a meta note, with Lewis and Aydin discussing the idea of turning Lewis’ memoirs into a comic book.
