Join Congressman John Lewis — renowned civil rights leader and co-author of the acclaimed graphic novel series March — and his March co-creators for a special appearance celebrating the National Endowment for the Humanities. Often called “one of the most courageous persons the civil rights movement ever produced,” Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights and securing civil liberties. Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell will discuss the legacy of the civil rights movement, the power of visual literature to educate and inspire today’s youth, and the crucial role of libraries in our democracy. A book signing will follow.
