Dawud is a custodian of our true culture and heritage. A giant amongst us. He and his team have been providing the people with powerful Afrikan cosmology in the form of allegorical sequential art for over 25 years!!!!! Now it is time to reciprocate it so that we have our own mythos in mainstream media. I support brotherman: revelation 100,000%. I implore you all to assist in making this reality because our future (our seeds) will benefit from this the most. An artistic historical foundation that delves deep into the psychosis of the human experience. I love you brother, keep being a shining example!- Kamani “KT The Arch Degree” Tait

Rikers Island: I introduced the youth to the work of Dawud Anyabwile. These incarcerated young people could not believe there was comic book /graphic novel dealing with many of the same issues they are currently facing. With the aid of the comic I was able to show the young.....the concepts such as government created poverty cycles.... gang violence. Self discovery. Self awareness. Family values. Manhood and many more.... even the C.O’s were surprised by the class topic.
