Notes:

"The first of its kind, Abina and the Important Men is a compelling and powerfully illustrated 'graphic history' based on a 1876 court transcript of a West African woman named Abina, who was wrongfully enslaved and took her case to court....it uses the power of illustration to convey important theme in world history and to reveal the processes by which history is made."
