So many histories of women can only be found in the cracks, pieced together through what is omitted rather than saved. In her debut graphic novel, with striking pen and ink illustration by Hugo Martinez, Rebecca Hall recounts the struggle to uncover narratives about women’s roles in slave revolts for her PhD. But where she is met with lack and institutional gatekeeping, she fills in the stories of these women herself. A necessary and heart-wrenching read.
