March: Book One is a graphic-novel memoir by a living legend of the civil right movement. Created by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, during the era of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis' lifelong personal story, March reflects the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.

This event will include opening remarks, light dinner, and small-group breakout sessions. Open to members of the Ford School community.
