"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
"Superbly told history."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Dazzling ...a grand work." --Booklist (starred review)
"Lewis' remarkable life has been skillfully translated into graphics...Segregation's insult to personhood comes across here with a visual, visceral punch. This version of Lewis's life story belongs in libraries to teach readers about the heroes of America." --Library Journal (starred review)
"A powerful tale of courage and principle igniting sweeping social change, told by a strong-minded, uniquely qualified eyewitness ...the heroism of those who sat and marched ...comes through with vivid, inspiring clarity." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
