Bloody Sunday and Beyond

March: Book Three - Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell, John Lewis Gaddis

John Lewis concludes his masterful account of the Civil Rights Movement which will likely become a standard of non-fiction graphic novels for years to come. For me the most shocking aspect of the story is not the brutality of the response to non-violent protest, or the denial a basic Constitutional rights to U.S. citizens based on race, but how recent these events were. Only 51 years have passed since the events in Selma and Montgomery. It is all still in living memory, and as much as we would like to see it consigned to the history books, racism in American politics has merely moved from overt to covert.
