October 16 The Good Trouble Productions website and Lowndes County Comics

Good Trouble Productions has just launched its website where you can find a new (and free!) digital collection of the Lowndes County Freedom Organization Comics.

In 1965 in Lowndes County, Alabama, local Black citizens and SNCC organizers formed the Lowndes County Freedom Organization, an independent political party. Among other efforts their work involved the creation of comics explaining the roles of local elected positions to educate and encourage Black citizens to vote and run for office.

Working with SNCC for their anniversary conference, Good Trouble Productions has compiled these comics for download here. This package also includes an interview with Courtland Cox and Jennifer Lawson, who created the comics, and an essay by Professor Qiana Whitted of the University of South Carolina.

Good Trouble Productions is a creative non-fiction venture by Andrew Aydin, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Matt Fraction, Valentine De Landro, and Vaughn Shinall, which previously produced Registered, for NYC-DOE, and the graphic novel Run, published by Abrams ComicArt. Good Trouble’s next release is the forthcoming Recognized, also for NYC-DOE.

You can also find Good Trouble Productions on Twitter and Instagram.
