in Walking with the Wind 1998 Fortunately, it s such a good story a sharecropper s son rises to eminence by prosecuting the cause of his people that it bears retelling, especially in this graphic novel by Lewis, his aide Aydin, and Powell, one of the finest American comics artists going After a kicker set on Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, on March 7, 1965 the civil rights movement s Bloody Sunday , the story makes January 20, 2009 President Obama s inauguration a base of operations as it samples Lewis past via his reminiscences for two schoolboys and their mother, who ve shown up early at his office on that milestone day for African Americans This first of three volumes of Lewis story brings him from boyhood on the farm, where he doted over the chickens and dreamed of being a preacher, through high school to college, when he met nonviolent activists who showed him a means of undermining segregation to begin with, at the department store lunch counters of Nashville Powell is at his dazzling best throughout, changing angle of regard from panel to panel while lighting each with appropriate drama The kineticism of his art rivals that of the most exuberant DC and Marvel adventure comics and in black and white only, yet Books Two and Three may not surpass Book One, but what a grand work they ll complete Ray OlsonEisner winner Powell s dramatic black and white graphic art ratchets up the intensity in this autobiographical opener by a major figure in the civil rights movement In this first of a projected trilogy, Lewis, one of the original Freedom Riders and currently in his 13th term as a U.S Representative, recalls his early years from raising and preaching to chickens on an Alabama farm to meeting Martin Luther King Jr and joining lunch counter sit ins in Nashville in 1960 The account flashes back and forth between a conversation with two young visitors in Lewis congressional office just prior to Barack Obama s 2009 inauguration and events five or decades ago His education in nonviolence forms the central theme, and both in his frank, self effacing accounts of rising tides of protest being met with increasingly violent responses and in Powell s dark, cinematically angled and sequenced panels, the heroism of those who sat and marched and bore the abuse comes through with vivid, inspiring clarity The volume closes with the founding of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee which Lewis went on to chair , and its publication is scheduled to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, at which Lewis preceded Dr King on the podium Of everyone who spoke at the march, I m the only one who s still around A powerful tale of courage and principle igniting sweeping social change, told by a strong minded, uniquely
