He was chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and played a key role in the struggle to end segregation. Despite more than 40 arrests, physical attacks, and serious injuries, John Lewis remained a devoted advocate of the philosophy of nonviolence. He is co-author of the first comics work to ever win the National Book Award, the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel memoir trilogy MARCH, written with Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell.

"A riveting and beautiful civil-rights story... Lewis's gripping memoir should be stocked in every school and shelved at every library." -- The Washington Post

"Essential reading... March is a moving and important achievement... the story of a true American superhero." -- USA Today
