Seen: Edmonia Lewis
It's about being seen. Both for who you are, and who you hope you can become. History is a mirror, and all too often, the history we're told in school reflects only a small subset of the population. In the new ongoing graphic novel program; Seen: True Stories of Marginalized Trailblazers, you'll find the stories of the real groundbreakers who changed our world for the better. Meet Edmonia Lewis, the woman who changed America during the Civil War by becoming the first sculptor of African-American and Native American heritage to earn international acclaim. In the tradition of March, Science Comics, and A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns , Jasmine Walls and Bex Glendining shine a light on a true story of courage, determination and perseverance through one of America's most violent eras to create true beauty that still resonates today.
