(H)afrocentric is the comic for right now: Black, queer, and throwing punches

Juliana “Jewels” Smith's satirical comic is billed as "the feminist version of Boondocks." It's never felt more relevant.

The United States is in the midst of a reckoning.

Protests are raging across the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade last month — three more Black Americans killed by police. Black activists and allies of all races are demanding justice, demanding the upheaval of a racist law enforcement system and constant abuses of power. But calls to end police brutality have only been met with more police brutality — and so the protests continue.

The revolution has never felt so close at hand.
