"A vivid, insightful, and moving illustrated graphic memoir by Weaver, who emigrated from Argentina to the American South as a young girl in 1961, recounting her impressions of her family's new and unexpected life in racist, rural Alabama during the civil rights movement. In beautiful gray-shaded drawings, Weaver depicts the reality of the segregated and newly integrated South and her struggle to position herself as an ally to her black classmates, only to find that it's a path fraught with pitfalls from both sides of the divide."--Publishers Weekly
"A truly incredible look at the civil rights movement. Darkroom offers a double view of that movement. A gem."
--Nikki Giovanni, author of Gemini and On My Journey Now
