Cancelled: John Lewis visit/Rescheduled for Nov 27

Thursday, September 21, 2017

We are disappointed to announce that the planned visit with Congressman John Lewis on September 21 have been cancelled. Congressman Lewis had planned to give a talk about his graphic novel series, March, alongside his co-authors Nate Powell and Andrew Aydin. 

The visit had been planned in conjunction with the University of Michigan and the Penny Stamps Speaker Series. The talk was cancelled due to an urgent meeting of the Black Congressional Caucus that required the Congressman to be in Washington D.C. this week. We hope that his talk will be rescheduled and will post information as it becomes available. 


All YDL events related to his visit on September 21 have been cancelled, including the tribute march and the livestream at WCC.

The Books & Related Events

In preparation for the visit, YDL ordered more than 250 copies of the March trilogy. These books are available for patrons to check out!

In addition, two fall events that had been planned are still happening: a film screening of Get In The Way about John Lewis' history and a Social Justice Comics workshop.
