This is an excellent project! It is fresh, engaging, and historically sound. I would definitely use this text in my Modern Africa and African Women’s History classes. I really like the way that the author and illustrator have divided the book into sections for different levels of analysis. Beginning students can focus on the graphic novel, while more advanced students can also discuss the production of historical knowledge and the larger historiography.
