This is How Black Artists are Reinventing Comics

Military veterans Manuel and Geiszel Godoy are pairing social justice with comics to give another platform for storytelling back to Black illustrators. The duo founded Black Sands Entertainment, under it the Black Sands Publishing app that will offer free access to 26 original comics. The point of this company and its many projects to come is to reverse the trends of an industry once deeply rooted in racism and alienation. The Godoys want to give comics as a medium back to Black activists who want to express the vision of the future that they have, rather than prolonging narratives of trauma and struggle.
