This graphic novel version of the life of Martin Luther King Jr. , and the Civil Rights Movement in the USA, is an exciting dialogue between two very different storytelling traditions. Arthur Flowers, African-American writer, tells the story in lyrical prose while Manu Chitrakar, traditional Patua artist from West Bengal, India, paints a series of powerful images that capture with drama and force the truly iconic moments of King’s life. In the process, King’s struggle transcends its context, and becomes truly universal.
