Congressman John Lewis's graphic novel, "March."

Georgia Congressman John Lewis is the son of Alabama sharecroppers. He went on to speak alongside Martin Luther King Jr. at the March on Washington, and later became a politician to continue his fight for civil rights.

Now he's turned his life experience into a graphic novel titled, "March."

The first in a three-book series was unveiled a few weeks ago at Comic-Con. From the Fronteras desk, KPBS reporter Sandhya Dirks has this story.
