"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

"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

"I cannot recommend this book enough." — Trevor Noah

"This memoir's unique eyewitness view of epochal events makes it essential reading for an understanding of those times—and these." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A stirring call to action that’s particularly timely in this election year, and one that will resonate and empower young readers in particular. Essential reading." — Booklist (starred review)

"Simultaneously epic and intimate... These vivid black-and-white visuals soar." School Library Journal (starred review)

"Lewis has a unique perspective from which to recall these events, and he does so with intimate familiarity and bracing honesty... Powell’s kinetic, fluid black-and-white illustrations create a relentless cascade of words and images that assaults the senses and underscores the brutality of the period. From Maus to Persepolis, graphic-novel memoirs have accounted for a large share of critical acclaim for the comics format, and now that this trilogy is complete, it can stand shoulder to shoulder with any of them." The Horn Book (starred review)

"The closest American peer to Maus has arrived." — The Washington Post

"Every bit the first two’s equal... An essential story." — Austin American-Statesman

"March: Book Three is more than just a wonderfully executed historical account and terrific educational volume; it's a victory tale for the oppressed, an inspiration to anyone victimized by injustice, and a positive and motivational work that sings the praises and virtue of non-violence." — Comic Book Resources

"March may be the best civil rights story ever... I would even put it in the same hallowed category as Art Spiegelman's Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus." — Mashable
