The Silence of Our Friends is a semi-autobiographical tale of the fight for civil rights in 1967 Texas. A white family from a racist neighbor hood and a black family from the poorest ward in Houston fight to help free five black college students wrongly charged with the murder of a policeman.
This story paints a powerful portrait of a moment in history, convincingly depicting systemic racism, uneasy family dynamics through multiple perspectives, and more. Beautiful and intense, you'll be hard pressed to set this graphic novel down.
