Throughout American history, injustice has caused the progression of society to be hindered. Civil rights movements played a key role during these times to spur the desire for change. The March on Washington, as illustrated by the graphic novel March: Book One by John Lewis, was one movement in particular that promoted non-violent protest in order to combat a nationwide issue. Efforts to overcome injustice have been crucial in achieving equality across many decades. The American identity is constantly being shaped by the way we overcome various obstacles to our freedom.
