More schools are using “March,” U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ graphic novel trilogy about the civil rights movement, to reach a new generation of students.
On Monday, Lewis and co-author Andrew Aydin spoke with students at Atlanta’s King Middle School. The Atlanta school district plans to teach “March” in seventh-grade English courses.
“I think the book to some degree has become what I like to call a change agent,” Lewis told the New York Times. The book, he said, has caused “another generation to get out there and push and pull and try to set things right.”
