SOCIAL ANGST is more than just a blog, it is an invitation to aid in the building of wealth through the shared task of information distribution and discussion. It is a call to engage – engage in society, engage with your peers, engage in your political system, engage in spreading the wealth that is information, and engage in multiplying that wealth through discussion – so that collectively we may become more socially aware, more socially responsible, more socially vocal and ultimately more socially valuable.

The Obama Effect?
Increase of Black Characters in Graphic Novels

The Liberty Journal has an interesting article by Martha Comog, that highlights 24 new graphic novels featuring "engaging African American main characters" that are set to be released in time for Black History Month.  The article, From Aya to Zapt!: 24 Graphic Novels for African American History Month, features selections for adults, teens, and tweens. 

Black History Month is a wonderful time to market the talents of Black writers, so it is a bit hard to tell if this actually qualifies as an Obama Effect.  Yet something about Comogs initial remarks makes this years increase seem unique.  Or is it just me?
