Pages from the first installment of our soon-to-be-released graphic novel.
The Black Gotham Experience graphic novel series are works of historical fiction that will visually thread a continuous line from the west coast of Africa in the early 17th century to the dawn of the archipelago metropolis of New York City at the end of the 19th century; connecting three centuries of African Diasporic history before Harlem becomes the epicenter of Black American culture.
The first story in the series, Other Side of Wall Street, is being released as chapters. This important story lays the foundation for the graphic novel series, looking deeply into the world of Black people who survived and escaped slavery, then built a town of farmers stretching from today’s East and West Village.
