New York, 1989 - a decade of activism around the urban housing crisis is coming to a close. Legendary graphic artist Seth Tobocman documents it in his bold comic style. In a collection of his most enduring images, Tobocman covers everything from the imprisonment of Mumia Abu-Jamal; the rise of Reaganomics; the struggle against apartheid and the Miami race riots. It is both a candid portrait of a decade of struggle to preserve basic human rights and a critical historical artefact.
Seth Tobocman is an author, artist, and educator living in New York City. Perhaps most well known as the co-founder and editor of the comic journal World War 3 Illustrated, Tobocman's bold graphic style has been immortalized in exhibitions, in the pages of the New York Times, and on the sides of buildings around the globe.
