"For all the many titles that appear on segregation and protest for younger readers, this one stands tall not just for delving into a piece of labor history not previously covered, but for its ability to relate history with heart and resonance."—Kirkus, starred review
". . . stirring pictures celebrate the historic civil rights and union protests that brought attention to the issue . . . The story’s roots in rarely told history will widen the audience for this moving title to older readers, too."—Booklist
"It's a moving study of multigenerational relationships and triumph over discrimination."—Publishers Weekly
