Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts
Friday, June 11, 6 p.m. TKE and Underground Books (Sacramento, CA) proudly welcome Dr. Rebecca Hall and illustrator Hugo Martinez for a discussion of their new graphic novel, Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts. They will be in conversation with Trevor Getz, Professor of African and World History at San Francisco State University.
This free, virtual event will take place on Crowdcast and you must register here to participate.
Order your copy of Wake from The King’s English Bookshop or Underground Books and receive an autographed bookplate, while supplies last.
Part graphic novel, part memoir, Wake is an imaginative tour-de-force that tells the story of women-led slave revolts and chronicles scholar Rebecca Hall’s efforts to uncover the truth about these women warriors who, until now, have been left out of the historical record.
Women warriors planned and led slave revolts on slave ships during the Middle Passage. They fought their enslavers throughout the Americas. And then they were erased from history.
