John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell

On Monday, October 5, 2015, I got to see a presentation by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, the team that created Lewis's autibographical three-part graphic novel titled March.. The presentation took place at Nassau Community College, in the Multipurpose Room of its CCB Building, where the campus hosts major presentations and activities.
     John Lewis, age 75, stocky and short and bristling with determination, is a true civil rights hero. He spoke with amiable humor. He removed the cordless mic from its podium stand so that he could walk about the stage and bend as close as possible to the standing-room-only audience. Andrew Aydin, the writer and digital coordinator, used the podium, as did the artist Nate Powell. Those two spoke about the process of creating March. They recounted the people who absorbed meaning and inspiration through the graphic novel, including Powell's three-year-old daughter. They encouraged everyone, especially young people, to do as Lewis had done: act on what they believed in, not just read about problems.
     Aydin and Powell delivered much that was important, but it was Lewis's warm outreach to the audience that exemplified the leadership style that helped him and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee power the civil rights movement fifty years ago. I am inspired and thrilled to have seen this presentation.

I strongly believe in a cycle of continuous improvement and think that complaceny is a total killer. That's what I also aim for in uk cv writing service and that has kept me floating :)
