    “This is a beautiful history of the Civil Rights Movement for young adult readers where the art and form of the printed work tells as much about the movement as the poetry. A stunning read for all ages!”

    —Casey Gerken, Innisfree Bookshop, Meredith, NH

    And We Rise is an extraordinary history-in-verse of the Civil Rights Movement, written in haunting language and unflinching honesty. This book belongs on every shelf and in every classroom.”

    —Isabella Ogbolumani, Buffalo Street Books, Ithaca, NY


    “A moving poetry book that teaches about the Civil Rights Movement in a dynamic way. Martin’s use of word and space come together in a powerful way that makes you sit and be in the emotion.”

    —Shoshonna Roberts, Maggie Mae’s Kids Bookshop, Gresham, OR
