Amatl Comix #4

Black Representation in
the World of Animation

"While mesmerized by ink-lined cells shaking to their own rhythm and beat, Darius Gainer has written a long overdue text chronicling an obscure field that is, as all aspects of Black history are, joyously and quintessentially American."

Tim Fielder

author of INFINITUM: An Afrofuturist Tale

“Gainer's work is painfully necessary and brilliantly articulated. With the proliferation of animated images representing people of color, a text of this nature is vital and Gainer rises to the task.”
