This looks cool- Birth of a Nation by Aaron McGruder (of Boondocks) Reginald Hudlin and Kyle Baker. When Florida style disenfranchisement means most of the population of East St. Louis can’t vote in a Presidential election a dumb Texan fronting for extreme right wingers gets into the White House. East St. Louis’ idealistic mayor, spurred on by black nationalists and a dubious billionaire, decides the city should secede from the Union. The Republic of Blackland becomes rich from “offshore banking”, but can it last?
