This sequel to March: Book One, continues to follow John Lewis. After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, he is more committed than ever to changing the world through nonviolence, but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the South, they will be tested like never before. Faced with beatings, police brutality, imprisonment, arson and even murder, the movement's young activists place their lives on the line while internal conflicts threaten to tear them apart. But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.
