An illustration of T. Taylor Fortune reading a newspaper
Jasmine Walls
I wrote this comic about Timothy Thomas Fortune, a newspaper editor, orator, and leader who was born into slavery and spent most of his life advocating for the rights of black Americans. Although not as well known as some of his more famous counterparts, Fortune had a profound influence on the battle for civil rights.
