For Kids!

by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin & Nate PowellMarch Pic

People, I had the chance to hear Congressman John Lewis speak this past weekend—if you ever have a similar opportunity I highly recommend it. Lewis has written a graphic novel (along with a co-author and illustrator) about his experiences in the civil rights movement. His project is modeled after a comic book he read in the 1950s, Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story, which ultimately inspired him to join the civil rights movement. Lewis’ book aims to bring his story to a new generation and it was really great to see a bunch of tweens in the crowd. From what I’ve read so far, this would be good for kids roughly 10 years and up. I think. I know nothing about kids or what they read, so, parents: check it out and be the judge. (And let me know) It’s very well done.
