Still I Rise: A Graphic History of African Americans Still I Rise: A Graphic History of African Americans

by Roland Laird and Taneshia Nash Laird, Illustrations by Elihu "Adofo" Bey

Book Reviews

"Still I Rise is an amazingly condensed cartoon chronicle of African Americans . . . brings to life the struggles and triumphs of blacks in America . . . the Lairds have packed an epic quantity of information into this engaging, well-written volume."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Still I Rise is a quick way to satisfy the hunger we have about who we are.  I gave my young son Nyere a copy of Still I Rise.  He came back with a head filled with history."
--E. Ethelbert Miller, Howard University

"This graphic history is funny, intelligent, deeply researched, and, well, graphic.  Brilliantly so.  It's not just the history of African Americans; it's the African-American history of all Americans."
--Russell Banks, Author of Rule of the Bone
