Six histories of resistance by marginalised South Africans against the country’s colonial government in the years leading up to apartheid. Each chapter is illustrated by a different artist.

"All Rise is a giant step for South African comics: an inspired mix of archival sleuthing and graphic vision. Conyngham and his all-star team of artists have dug up a hoard of resistance history, and brought it to glittering life." Carlos Amato, Mail & Guardian

"Not only a great read, this beautifully illustrated graphic history is also a valuable educational resource that should spark important conversations about law, (in)justice and history across our country." Kate O'Regan, retired Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa
