Choices and Trends for Women "from Teens to Grandmothers"


Vol 1 from an enterprising graphic novelist about ten little known African American men from the little remembered Black History.A  book with vivid colors to appeal to many readers, especially young readers in school libraries. Tales, for example, of the first Black Magician  reveal what black men have achieved in our history. It does not shy away from what they have sometimes had to endure and hopefully future volumes will include women and other ethnicities to provide a broad pictures of uncelebrated heroes and heroines in American and, perhaps, World History. 


Here’s a TOAST to the First in what we hope should become a long series for all ages to enjoy.




Join graphic novel author and illustrator JOEL GILL on his fall tour in promotion of STRANGE FRUIT: UNCELEBRATED NARRATIVES FROM BLACK HISTORY, VOL. 1
Strange Fruit is black history as you’ve never seen it before. Working with a striking palette of ruby reds, rich browns, bleached-out blues and deep piney greens, author/artist Joel Christian Gill conjures up forgotten firsts and impassioned everymen in a cartoon style that’s at once cheeky and epic, naive and majestic.” — The Chicago Tribune
