In Canterbury Connecticut 1832, Black people may not be slaves but they are not free. When an all girls boarding school moves to accept Black students, that fact becomes sadly and dangerously clear.

This is as realistic a portrayal as it can be if you want young children to read it; telling a little known story in American history. I think people should check tis book out as a starting point to learning more as it shows how racism endured after slavery and what education access means – especially to minorities. It’s beautifully drawn but breezes along a bit too quick but that’s to be expected of historical graphic novels as page limits and entertainment value are factors. 4 out of 5.

Antoine, Emile, and Pierrot reunite for a funeral and reflect on how their lives have unfolded in such different ways after their revolutionary days are over; leading them to wonder how they make a difference now.

I really enjoyed this! The art is perfect for the story, giving enough detail to the older faces without going overboard. I love seeing how people in their 70’s refuse to give up the fight for justice in whatever way they can. Everyone has such personality that the few points were the story dragged didn’t feel long. Worth checking out! 4 out of 5.
