Robert Smalls: Tales of the Talented Tenth, no. 3
by Joel Christian Gill Author and Qiana Whitted Foreword
In the third book of the Tales of the Talented Tenth series, Joel Christian Gill brings Robert Smalls to life by telling the true story of the enslaved African who pulled off one of the most daring and largest heists of the Civil War. Tales of the Talented Tenth is a historical comic series that focuses on the adventures of amazing African Americans in action; with vivid and whimsical art, these comics are accessible to adults, teens, and young readers, and bring to life not only an extraordinary tale of adventure but also the history of previously disenfranchised peoples. Come along for the adventure as Robert earns a job working for the C.S.S. Planter, escapes to freedom, goes on to become a first-generation Black politician, and makes history by writing and leading the passage of legislation that led to the United States’ first free and compulsory public school system.
