Here’s one I should have linked to closer to Martin Luther King Day. During the Civil Rights movement a comic was created to celebrate Reverend King and promote his message of peaceful protest for the rights of black people to be treated like people. There’s also a link at the end of the article so you can read the comic yourself.

    I never knew that there was a comic book about Martin Luther King, Jr. Very nice. It would be pretty inspirational to see more comic books created about heroic people from both past and present. In terms of black history (seeing as February is Black History Month), I do remember that there was a comic book in the 1970s about Toussaint L’Ouverture, Haiti’s hero who ended slavery on that island and led the way towards Haiti’s independence from France.
