Event Details

U.S. Representative John R. Lewis  (photo by Ned Ahrens)Former U.S. Congresswoman, Shelley Berkley, now CEO and Sr. Provost of Touro University Nevada, invites you to listen to a remarkable story from the only living member of the “Big Six” leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement with a lecture and book signing with U.S. Congressman John Lewis and co-author Andrew Aydin on Sunday, June 29.  The free lecture will start at 5:00 p.m. with a book signing at 6:00 p.m.

Congressman John Lewis (Georgia) is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and non-violence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress; from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington; and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

March - Book One -- coverNow, to share his remarkable story with new generations, Lewis presents March, a graphic novel trilogy, in collaboration with co-author Andrew Aydin and New York Times best-selling artist Nate Powell. March is a vivid, first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights. Book one spans Lewis’ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall.
