This is such an intense conclusion to the March trilogy. It's intensely violent, but in a way that just seems straightforward and honest. People in the civil rights movement were beaten and killed. It's appropriate for portions of the book to feel like a glimpse into a war zone. I think Book Two showed more beatings by regular old community racists, while Book Three reminds us that a lot of the violence was carried out directly by law enforcement and elected officials.

I wish we saw more of Malcolm X's point of view. That's not really a criticism of the book; obviously it's here to tell John Lewis's story. But the brief interview about listening to Dr. King's demands in order to avoid dealing with a more forceful organization feels like it brings up an enormous new topic and never gets a chance to resolve it.
