Summary
<U+001c>Eisner award-winning cartoonist Marcelo D<U+0019>Salete boldly recreates a long-overlooked history of black resistance against oppression. Founded in late sixteenth-century Brazil, Angola Janga was a beacon of freedom. For over a hundred years, this community of runaway slaves thrived in fierce opposition to the Dutch and Portuguese colonial powers. In the stunning follow-up to his critically acclaimed graphic novel debut, Run for It. D<U+0019>Salete brings the history of this precarious kingdom to live<U+0014>the painful stories of fugitives, the brutal raids by colonial forces, and the tense power struggles among its inhabitants. At turns empowering and heartbreaking, Angola Janga is a stark reminder that the fight for justice is an eternal battle.<U+0029>-- cover page 4
