John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell have received the National Book Award for Young People's Literature for 'March: Book Three.' The prize is given annually by the National Book Foundation in honor of exceptional children's literature.March: Book Three is the final installment in a graphic memoir trilogy documenting the Civil Rights Movement.
This book is for all of America. It is for all people, but especially young people, to understand the essence of the civil rights movement, to walk through the pages of history to learn about the philosophy and discipline of nonviolence, to be inspired to stand up to speak out and to find a way to get in the way when they see something that is not right, not fair, not just.
