March Book Two is the continuation of John Lewis’ struggle, along with
Martin Luther King Jr., to fight for equal rights. Included in the second of
John’s trilogy is his fight as a freedom rider, his fight against police
brutality, and his role in convincing Robert and John F. Kennedy that his
people needed more help and should write a more comprehensive Civil
Rights Bill. Last, but not least in this book, John Lewis was the third
speaker at the March on Washington. He is the only one alive today who
spoke at that famous event. Students will use their reading strategies and
critical thinking to learn about the Civil Rights Movement and challenging
American history events in the sixties. In conclusion, students will be
expected to rehash the events from March, Books One and Two, to write
their own speech as if they were to be speakers at the March on Washington.
