Description Strange Fruit, Volume I de Joel Christian Gill:

"Strange Fruit, Volume I" is a collection of stories from African American history that exemplifies success in the face of great adversity. This unique graphic anthology offers historical and cultural commentary on nine uncelebrated heroes whose stories are not often found in history books. Among the stories included are: Henry "Box" Brown, who escaped from slavery by mailing himself to Philadelphia- Alexander Crummel and the Noyes Academy, the first integrated school in America, established in the 1830s- Marshall "Major" Taylor, a.k.a. the Black Cyclone, the first black champion in any sport- and Bass Reeves, the most successful lawman in the Old West. Written and illustrated by Joel Christian Gill, the diverse art beautifully captures the spirit of each remarkable individual and opens a window into an important part of American history. Joel Christian Gill is the chairman, CEO, president, director of development, majority and minority stock holder, manager, co-manager, regional manager, assistant to the regional manager, receptionist, senior black correspondent, and janitor of Strange Fruit Comics. In his spare time he is the Chair of Foundations at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and member of The Boston Comics Roundtable. He received his MFA from Boston University and a BA from Roanoke College. His secret lair is behind a secret panel in the kitchen of his house (sold separately) in New Boston, New Hampshire where he lives with his wife, four children, talking dog, and two psychic cats. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., is Director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research and Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at Harvard University. A host for PBS, including the recent series "The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross" and "Black in Latin America." Professor Gates is the author of 16 books, the first Black American to earn a Ph.D. from Cambridge, in the first class awarded the MacArthur Foundation "genius grants" and the first African American scholar to receive the National Humanities Medal. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of TheRoot.com, a daily online magazine focusing on issues of interest to the African American community and written from an African American prospective.
