Need some comic books and graphic novels to read during Black History Month? The library has you covered.
During Black History Months, we are reminded of the countless ways African Americans have contributed to visual arts, music, film, and fashion, among other creative endeavors. Like jazz, comic books are a truly American artform whose influence showcases the talent of countless Black creators. While comics have had a frustrating history with diversity and representation, the number of Black authors, illustrators, inkers, letterers, and colorists who have contributed to the medium is extensive and ever-increasing. By no means an exhaustive list, hopefully these books provide a starting point for those hoping to delve into the diverse world of comics created by African Americans.
