Black Women in Sequence takes readers on a search for women of African descent in comics subculture. From the 1971 appearance of the Skywald Publications character “the Butterfly” - the first Black female superheroine in a comic book - to contemporary comic books, graphic novels, film, manga, and video gaming, a growing number of Black women are becoming producers, viewers, and subjects of sequential art. As the first detailed investigation of Black women’s participation in comic art, Black Women in Sequence examines the representation, production, and transnational circulation of women of African descent in the sequential art world. In this groundbreaking study, which includes interviews with artists and writers, Deborah Whaley suggests that the treatment of the Black female subject in sequential art says much about the place of people of African descent in national ideology in the United States and abroad.

This book reflects poor black America’s human condition and cruel reality historically in this country. Most poor people and people of color see enough of life’s dark side to know for sure what’s really going on. All of the social double standards and blatant contradictions that continue to define the democratic process for most of America’s poor and forgotten people of color, still finds the American Dream to be a figment of their imaginations. This book is meant to show how American History is merely his story. The powers that be continue to impose their will on much smaller nations decade after decade in the name of freedom and democracy. Yet, nothing about our might makes right, preemptive strike mentalities has changed most poor Americans lifestyles. If anything it has merely reduced the level of comfort and security most people in this country live in daily, by heightening our nation’s risk of being attacked. So the fear factor continues to control what really goes on in this country from decade to decade. This is why our nation will never be a genuine United States of America.

In the midst of oppression, poverty, violence, and insufficiency where survival takes priority over salvation, what theology speaks to this condition? Black Theology and Holy Hip-hop are important to understand and promote, especially in their relationship to inner-city ministry and spiritual development, primarily in regards to black and brown youth. This work investigates the complex crises experienced among our black and brown youth, with special focus on the inner-city. Black Theology and Holy Hip-hop is less about people and more about institutions--the dichotomy between the institution of the church and the social institution of music that affects young people's mindset. This book will examine how a double-edged sword of Black Theology and Holy Hip-hop will cut a new faith in inner-city ministry that will initiate freedom against personal pain and systemic oppression, on the one hand, and free minds from self-hate and submissive control on the other.
