“Your Black Friend” by Ben Passmore
“Your Black Friend” written and narrated by Ben Passmore. Animation by Krystal Downs & Alex Krokus of Doggo Studios, sound by James Deangelis.
Parts of this definitely resonate… Looking forward to picking up this collection when it comes out.
Your black friend knows that he’s valued both by black and white people for his close proximity to “whiteness” but is also totally devalued for it. Simultaneously he is lost in this contradiction and held responsible for it.
From the 120 page comics collection “Your Black Friend and Other Strangers” debuting in March 2018 from Silver Sprocket.
