Three years ago, Representative John Lewis published the first book in a three-part graphic novel series about his experience as a leader for the Civil Rights Movement. Today, March is one of the biggest books in the country, selling out on Amazon overnight. And it’s all because the next president decided to pick a fight.
Earlier this week, the Georgia congressman announced that he would not be attending President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. He added that he doubts the legitimacy of Trump’s election, given recent revelations about Russia’s attempts to sway public opinion in Trump’s favor. Doubting a presidency isn’t something Trump is unfamiliar with, given his years of claiming President Barack Obama wasn’t born here. However, instead of agreeing to disagree, Trump attacked the congressman’s credibility on Twitter...on a weekend celebrating the Civil Rights Movement Lewis fought and nearly died for.
