Run: Book One is the sequel to the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series March and is a continuation of the life story of John Lewis and the struggles seen across the United States after the Selma voting rights campaign. In Run: Book One, John Lewis and longtime collaborator Andrew Aydin reteam with Nate Powell, the award-winning illustrator of the March trilogy, and join L. Fury to tell this often overlooked chapter of civil rights history. To John Lewis, the civil rights movement came to an end with the signing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But that was after more than five years as one of the preeminent figures of the movement, leading sit-in protests and fighting segregation on interstate busways as an original Freedom Rider.
