Run: Book One (Run, 1)

This book is about John Lewis
"Run: Book One" is an Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir that vividly captures a pivotal chapter in the life of civil rights icon, John Lewis. Published on August 3, 2021, this graphic novel is a sequel to the acclaimed series "March," sharing the untold stories of struggle and resistance following the significant victories of the civil rights movement. As the battles for racial justice and voting rights rage on, Lewis's journey does not end with the signing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, but rather signals a new beginning. The narrative, enriched with the dynamic illustrations by Nate Powell and L. Fury, delves into Lewis's role beyond the Selma marches, exploring his leadership with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and his relentless fight against segregation. Recognized across multiple platforms, including The New York Times and School Library Journal, "Run: Book One" is an essential read for middle-school students, inspiring the next generation to participate in democracy and pursue justice. This graphic memoir not only honors John Lewis's legacy but also encourages young readers to reflect on how far society has come and the journey that still lies ahead in the fight for equality.
