Praise For…


"Who Was the Voice of the People? focuses on Cesar Chavez’s march from Delano, California, to Sacramento to peacefully protest unfair wages and working conditions for grape-farm workers, also calling attention to Delores Huerta and Roberto Bustos...All the [Who HQ Graphic Novels] showcase the passions and urgency or risks behind their headline-making events and humanize the people who made them possible." -- Booklist
