Continuing our Black History Month celebrations with...
Add Oil Comics (@addoilcomics)
Add Oil Comics explores social justice issues through the use of, well, comics. Some reblogged, some original, some inspired by submitted or found text. The one above illustrates a passage taken from Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me. See the full comic here.
CFBG Tips (@cfbgtips)
One part young woman’s journey on how to find her “mystical Carefree Black Girl essence,” one part tips on how you can do the same. Wholly good.
The Revolutionary Times (@therevtimes)
The Revolutionary Times features two dudes discussing the things we all talk about with our friends: gentrification, worry and anger regarding the current presidential administration, Star Wars. Sometimes they’re time travelers, but usually they’re not. It’s a good read, and we suggest you start with their comics on Tumblr tag.
Follow these too:
- Black Comics Chat (@blackcomicschat)—Not just comics (though they do have that), but also a space for Black people to talk with others about Black comics.
- Black Action Figures and Comics (@blactionfiguresandcomics)—Fan art, action figures, movie stills, and more. Heavy on the reblogs, it’s a good reminder of the power of a curatorial Tumblr.
Thanks for celebrating Black History Month with us, Tumblr. Everything we’ve been highlighting here on the staff blog ultimately comes from you all. We couldn’t ask for better users.
