Overview

In the format of a graphic novel and using journalism as a narrative, the story of the 2001 Cincinnati riots—the largest urban unrest since the 1992 Los Angeles riots—is charted in this visual history. The book traces the riot's genesis from the police killing of a 19-year-old African American man to his funeral six days later. What resulted from the killing was a tumultuous cocktail of nonviolent civil disobedience, frustration-fueled looting, and police violence. Told from a series of varying perspectives—activists, community leaders, and bystanders—this is a tale of an inner-city community coming together. An overlooked yet crucial piece of American history is retold in a contemporary format with an engaging narrative.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Comics bring to life and to light the joys and struggles of life. Moore has successfully continued that tradition, capturing a momentous part of a continuous movement for world wide justice. I look forward to his next work."  —Reverend Damon Lynch III, former president, Cincinnati Black United Front

"This account of the black community's awakening to its own power and oppression is also a young man's awakening to the world around him. Dan P. Moore has something that many of the biggest names in comics unfortunately lack—life experience and something to say about it."  —Seth Toboccman, author, Disaster and Resistance
