March: Book Three

(1) YA Illustrated by Nate Powell. This final volume includes the expected and necessary set pieces from the civil rights movement, culminating, finally, with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. But the smaller, lesser-known moments of violence, injustice, and helplessness are no less painful than these major events to read about, and Lewis recalls them with intimate familiarity and bracing honesty. Powell's kinetic, fluid black-and-white illustrations underscore the period's brutality.
