Ashay says, "Sons of Liberty Book 2 is a graphic novel with black super heroe's who were former slaves. I like the series, because the central characters are black and they transform the situation into which they have been unjustly thrust, yet they seek to make the world a better place. Also, the fact that the book has colorful comic style graphics with some African themes makes it even more appealing for young readers. Fiction, fantasy, adventure for real ... yeah these genres are needed for our black children too. Must have for the classroom and library."
