Lenni Reviews: “Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts” by Rebecca Hall & Hugo Martinez

Part memoir, this graphic novel details Rebecca Hall’s research into women who have lead slave revolts and the barriers to the silenced stories of the past.

This book can be dry. It’s hard to go through historical events and show research and statistics and also be entertaining but entertainment isn’t the point. I feel like I learned a lot from this book in an easily digestible format. I think it should be used to teach others about this part of our history. 4.7 out of 5.
