Reviews

"Brave acts of civil disobedience... [give] March its educational value even as Powell's drawings give Lewis's crisp narration an emotional power."- The New York Times

"There is perhaps no more important modern book to be stocked in American school libraries than March." - The Washington Post

"Essential reading... March is a moving and important achievement... the story of a true American superhero." - USA Today

"An incredible accomplishment. It is the history of John Lewis, the Civil Rights Movement and his role in it... a book that explains - more deeply than anything else I've ever read - the methods and the moral foundations of the civil rights movement, how civil rights activists did what they did and won what they won, and how they had the strength to do it in the most difficult circumstances imaginable." - Rachel Maddow

"March is one of the most important graphic novels ever created - an extraordinary presentation of an extraordinary life, and proof that young people can change the world. I'm stunned by the power of these comics, and grateful that Congressman Lewis's story will enlighten and inspire future generations of readers and leaders." - Raina Telgemeier

"A riveting chronicle of Lewis's extraordinary life... it powerfully illustrates how much perseverance is needed to achieve fundamental social change." - O, The Oprah Magazine

"With March, Congressman John Lewis takes us behind the scenes of some of the most pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement. In graphic novel form, his first-hand account makes these historic events both accessible and relevant to an entire new generation of Americans." - LeVar Burton

"Congressman John Lewis has been a resounding moral voice in the quest for equality for more than 50 years, and I'm so pleased that he is sharing his memories of the Civil Rights Movement with America's young leaders. In March, he brings a whole new generation with him across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, from a past of clenched fists into a future of outstretched hands." - President Bill Clinton

"March offers a poignant portrait of an iconic figure that both entertains and edifies, and deserves to be placed alongside other historical graphic memoirs like Persepolis and Maus." - Entertainment Weekly
