THE LONG MARCH Exhibit Calls on Americans to Vote

September 23, 2020

The legendary, visionary late Congressman John Lewis dedicated his life to defending every American’s right to vote. “The vote,” he often said, “is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool or instrument we have in a democratic society and we must use it.” We’re proud to honor his legacy with the launch of THE LONG MARCH, a new art exhibit dedicated to celebrating the congressman’s life and work and inspiring everyone to get out and vote!

THE LONG MARCH is based on the award-winning MARCH trilogy, written by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell. The books tell Lewis’s story, from his childhood through the famous attempted voting-rights march from Selma to Montgomery over the Edmund Pettus Bridge.  

The congressman passed away in July, so we must march on without him. How can we do that? The first thing to do is VOTE. Then let’s make sure we all keep getting in some “good trouble, necessary trouble” between now and Election Day—and beyond.
