    1 thought on “Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story”

    1. This was a comic that was produced shortly after the Montgomery bus boycott. It introduces nonviolence as a method of action for achieving civil rights. It does a really good job of introducing the basic concepts of nonviolent resistance. I would recommend this for anyone who is studying the civil rights movement or peace studies in general, especially if they are studying these subjects for the first time.

    2. Powerful. When you think about what they were trying to do and the impact it had, it's really something. Congressman Lewis says that he had a copy, someone gave it to him because be couldn't afford the 10¢, and a year later he met Dr. King and we all know what came of that journey together. Now all of these years later Congressman Lewis has authored his own graphic novel, the first of three to complete this new story; who knows how many other adults and children they might influence. To me it i [...]

    3. I read this many years ago, and wish I still had my copy! Thank you, Fellowship of Reconciliation.We need more of this kind of instructional comic, and we're about to have it, from our own Congressman, the Honorable Representative John Lewis (D), of the 5th Congressional District, which includes Atlanta.Quoting, from Publisher's Weekly article, "A Comic Book for Social Justice: John LewisBy Grace Bello" |Jul 19, 2012 [link below]: The congressman for Georgia’s fifth district, civil rights pion [...]

    4. Very good comic book and a piece of history that was published during the Civil Rights Movements. It also served as the precursor/inspiration to John Lewis' "March" graphic novel series .I liked that the Montgomery Bus boycott was told from the point of view of a everyday person who would have participated or saw the boycott in person. I especially liked the ending where the nonviolent philosophy is deconstructed for reader and it shows how you can actually live it out.

    5. Read because it was referenced in March: Book One. It's a bit of a relic of its time, but I still couldn't help but be pulled in by its message and the effective way it wove its story together.

    6. An excellent primer on the principles of nonviolent resistance. I especially like how the step-by-step guide at the end emphasizes the need to see each other as human. This principle seems to be lost in the current political climate.

    7. Really great! It confirms that teachings of all religions are targetting the same goal.Christianity says, love your enemy, for God loves him as he is God's child just like you.Ghandi fought British occupation through praying and fastingd finally Islam says وَلَا تَسْتَوِي الْحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّئَةُ ۚ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَ [...]

    8. I was curious about this after it was mentioned in March: Book One.It feels a little hokey and cheesy now (the way all old comics do), but it's informative and interesting as a historical relic.

    9. Applies just as much today as thenThis is a classic, historic graphic novelette from a dark time in our nation’s history that is worth reading for that reason alone. I think you will also find the message is just as relevant today with the continued struggle for equality in this county and in many countries around the world. For these two reasons, it should be required reading in every school. And who knows when we each might need to apply this non-violent protest to a just cause in our own fu [...]

    10. Sixteen powerful pages that elegantly articulate non-violent Christian social change. History, biography, first-person narrative, and an instructional manual rolled into one fascinating comic. I can’t wait to see what my students make of it!

    11. Title: Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story. See the whole comic online by clicking the link!Author: Fellowship of Reconciliation (Resnick and Hassler)Genre: Graphic novel, zine!, social justiceSetting: Mostly the US, a little bit in India Reason for Reading: Although this does not qualify for the 50 book challenge, since it was written by white men, I found it in a list of graphic novels for African American History month. This comic book, essentially an early radical zine, was helpful t [...]

    12. I bought this comic after seeing it mentioned in the March series. Apparently this comic inspired John Lewis to write March.The copy that I ordered is a reprint from 2014, but it's really interesting to think that it was originally published right in the middle of the Civil Rights movement. The comic book was apparently approved and endorsed by Dr. King, and the back of the comic even has a primer on how to use the "Montgomery Method" or Non-violent protests. This is a great tool for a classroom [...]

    13. Created by Alfred Hassler and Benton Resnik this short 16 pager comic book was first published in December 1957 by the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Illustrating the Nonviolent Method using the case of the Montgomery Buss Boycott, the comic very simple and elegantly tells how nonviolent action works. I read Stanford University's digitized copy which is available at: mlk-kpp01anford/index.p

    14. This is the comic book that inspired Congressman John Lewis to write his own amazing series of graphic novels called March. It is still very relevant. I learned things I didn't know about the Montgomery Bus Boycott. I learned more about other histories of struggles for civil rights. These struggles continue today. In my neighborhood and communities. And this book has some tools in it I know some people will find very helpful.I'm glad I read this before getting too far into the March books. I'm l [...]

    15. This comic was distributed during the Civil Rights Movement and was mentioned in the newly published graphic novel March Book One by John Lewis and illustrator Nate Powell. An inspiring piece of history that quickly shares the ideals of nonviolent struggles. The original 16 page comic will be republished in May, 2014.

    16. I was thrilled to find a copy of this comic online after hearing about it as being an inspiration to tell John Lewis’s graphic novel memoir trilogy March. I loved that it makes what they’re doing- and why- accessible to readers especially to a young audience.

    17. Wow! Amazed and pleased that this little piece of history was available to me through my public library. Describes the Montgomery bus boycott, describes Ghandi's nonviolent methods in India, and ends with a primer for those interested in nonviolent protest methods.

    18. A hidden gemI had no idea this book existed. It's needed now just as it was in 1957. What an inspiration that gives us tools in 2017 to combat ruthless conservative regression and hate. Love is the way.

    19. A great primary text and example of how African Americans used the comic book format to teach civil disobedience and civic participation.
