RIP John Seigenthaler, a legendary journalist, activist, and editor. While serving as assistant to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, he helped push the Movement to the forefront of the administration’s attention, being brutally beaten alongside the Freedom Riders. He also provided coverage on white supremacist activities, broken mental health system issues, and helped establish Wikipedia verification standards. I was lucky enough to eat dinner with him last October in Nashville— a great and gentle human being who truly walked the walk and remained dedicated to the people’s struggle throughout his life.

Freedom Riders roll into Montgomery. The next scene is possibly the most intense in all of MARCH: BOOK TWO— I admit I’m not looking forward to drawing the next 8 pages.

Last night, huddled into my daughter’s bed as she experienced fireworks for the first time, was one of the best moments of my entire life. Drink Deep.
