Reviews

"This is a fantastic choice for classrooms... will speak powerfully to anyone trying to make sense of their own values in the face of wider movements and calls to action."

-- "Booklist"
"This worthy successor to the late Congressman Lewis's March graphic memoir trilogy picks up in the civil rights leader's life during the 1960s counterculture revolution...This living history gives faces and voices to the legends of the civil rights era and connects their struggles to the present; the police brutality, voter suppression tactics, and segregationist politics of the 1960s are not so different from those Lewis was still making "good trouble" against at the time of his death in 2020. Lewis's stunning American story and legacy lives on in these pages."-- "Publishers Weekly STARRED Review"
"The legacy of civil rights icon John Lewis lives on in Run: Book One."
