This graphic novel version of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement is an exciting dialogue between two very different storytelling traditions. Arthur Flowers - African American writer and griot - tells the story in lyrical prose, while the text is illustrated by Manu Chitrakar, traditional Patua scroll artist from Bengal, India. The artist allows the tale to resonate in his own context, translating it into the vivid and colourful idiom of Patua art. In the process, King's struggle transcends its context, and becomes truly universal. This revised edition includes new art and an essay explaining how this extraordinary cross - cultural project evolved.
