In the award-winning March
nonfiction graphic novels by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, music is depicted as a powerful force in the major nonviolent resistance actions organized by Lewis and fellow Civil Rights Movement leaders. This volume presents the music of the March trilogy in accessible arrangements for carillon.
As a musical supplement, these songs and hymns are intended not only to be performed solo, but also to enable carillonists to organize family-friendly events featuring music and comics. There are annual opportunities for such community gatherings, including Martin Luther King Jr. Day (observed on the third Monday of January) and Black History Month (celebrated throughout February in the U.S. and Canada, and throughout October in the UK. and the Netherlands). Carillonists can also convene arts-centered gatherings to organize around civil rights issues, or to recognize local civil rights leaders. At schools, students can organize concerts in collaboration with relevant campus organizations.
