The tells a fraction of what happened during theses dark times in US history and I really enjoyed reading it to my peers.
March: Free Comic Book Day
March gives a poignant picture of the trauma during the quests for integration and the basic right to vote for African Americans. An essential read, especially in view of the gerrymandering and attempts to control the African American vote in the Presidential Election of 2016. There are still areas of inequality today, and as John F. Kennedy said, we must treat our fellow Americans as we would wish to be treated. Equally, and no less.
