A Read for Justice

The Silence of Our Friends

This graphic novel tells a lesser-known civil rights story of incidents that came to pass at Texas State University and the activist group Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Even greater than the actual civil rights movement is the everyday moments that foster a relationship between a white reporter and a black activist. This graphic novel highlights the beauty of self-discovery, taking a stand, and ensuring the rights and wrongs of society for a greater cause.
