Day 5 of #BlackComicsMonth is spotlighting our first black woman comic book creator Whit Taylor and her book, The Anthropologists. Stay tuned later today for an exclusive interview with Whit Taylor by CG from BlackGirlManifest.
The Anthropologists is a semi-autobiographical story about an anthropology major’s trip into the Australian Outback and her subsequent reevaluation of her field of study and sense of identity.
