Young C.L.R. James

by Paul Buhle, Milton Knight and Lawrence Ware

This graphic novelette illustrates the early years of C.L.R. James, the son of a family of teachers and in later years known as the "last great Pan-Africanist". Milton Knight's Golden Age cartoonist style helps weave a fascinating look at James life growing up in British-goverened Trinidad to his growing awareness of colonization and his eventual career journalism, literature and scholar of black history.
