1161Re: proposed comic book - "History of the Mulatto"
- Aug 26, 2006This is great, Jeff. Glad to hear you're doing this.
I would love for *someone* to make the point that not all of us who
are Multi-generationally mixed are so because of a slave owner in the
family. In my case, my Mother's great-Grandfather (maternal side) was
Irish, her great Grandmother was mostly Native. Neither were slave owners.

I am working on an all-ages ( say 6th grade and up ) short graphic
novel depicting the general history of the mulatto in the new world. I
will use the broad definition of mulatto as a person who is mixed
black and white as opposed to the strict bi-racial / 50-50 definition.
In it I plan on including the slave trade, the one-drop rule,
history of the Creoles and tri-racial isolates, the early civil-rights
movement (which was basically created and led by mulattoes), the
Harlem Renaissance as well as the modern developing "mixed-race movement".
If anyone has any areas they feel need to be stressed or ideas
please feel free to write me directly.
