This week's offering is a new copy of "Still I Rise" (Sterling, $14.95), a graphic history of African Americans, written by Roland Laird with Taneshia Nash Laird, and illustrated by Elihu "Adofo" Bey.
Still I Rise is a critically acclaimed work with an impressive scope: the entire history of Black America, told in an accessible graphic-novel form. Updated from its original version—which ended with the Million Man March—it now extends from the early days of colonial slavery right through to Barack Obama’s groundbreaking presidential campaign. Compared by many to Art Spiegelman’s Maus, Still I Rise is a breathtaking achievement that celebrates the collective African-American memory, imagination, and spirit.
