              For as far back as she can remember, historian and activist Rebecca Hall has been looking for tales of women warriors in the history of American slave resistance. The problem, she found, is that almost everywhere she looked - in the archives, in the history books - there was a bl...ank space. All the Black women who had fought and rebelled had been obscured, ignored, and blotted out. This is their story, and the story of uncovering their struggle. Strikingly illustrated by Hugo Martinez, Wake combines forensic historiography with powerful imaginative reconstruction to explore the humanity of the enslaved, the reality of their lives, and the complexity of a history that has been hidden.

              A historical and imaginative graphic novel that brings to light the existence of enslaved Black women warriors, Adono and Alele, on the slave ship The Unity. A historical tour-de-force, Wake is a graphic novel that offers invaluable insight into the endless struggle for survival ...as a Black woman in today's America. It is a historiography that illuminates both the challenges and the necessity of uncovering the true stories of slavery and is an overdue reckoning with slavery in New York City, where armed revolts took place. This transformative and transporting work of imaginative fiction brings characters Adono and Alele, and their pasts as women warriors, to vivid life. Timely, powerful, and empowering Wake illustrates the humanity of the enslaved, the reality of their lived experiences, and the complexity of the history that has been, until now, thoroughly erased.
