NPR's The Diane Rehm Show with Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin

Listen to Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin discuss March: Book Two on The Diane Rehm Show.

From The Diane Rehm Show website:

Most Americans alive today were either not yet born or were small children when the civil rights movement took place. Congressman John Lewis, who turns 75 next week, was a student leader of the movement. He, along with Martin Luther King Jr. and others, risked their lives many times over to fight for equality for all races. To help younger generations better understand that critical period in American history, Congressman Lewis and a young co-author have embarked on a trilogy of graphic novels. They join us to talk about the trilogy and what they hope to accomplish.

Guests

  • Rep. John Lewis Democratic Congressman representing Georgia's 5th District and author of "Walking with the Wind: A Memoir of a Movement."
  • Andrew Aydin digital director and policy adviser to Rep. John Lewis, and a lecturer on the history of comics and the civil rights movement.
