Comics Alternative Kickstarter: The North Star: The Emancipation of Frederick Douglass

Inspiring

On this weekend’s Kickstarter episode, Derek talks with Barron Bell and Koi Turnbull about their campaign The North Star: The Emancipation of Frederick Douglass. It’s a graphic adaptation of the memoir, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, and it’s the first of three planned volumes on Douglass’s life.

The North Star is a dramatic retelling of three pivotal moments in Frederick Douglass’s story, bringing to life the legendary figure’s efforts as an abolitionist, a businessman, a politician, and a man of faith. There are a variety of reward levels, some of which underscore this project’s goal as an educational tool.

Support these noble intentions by backing this Kickstarter campaign. And learn more about the work of Barron Bell and Koi Turnbull.
