The Tunisian Awakening (2019)
In his debut graphic novel, K. A. Hussein documents the Tunisian Revolution of 2011 in this 100-page, comprehensive, and powerfully illustrated blow-by-blow account.
On December 17, 2010, a struggling young fruit vendor lit himself on fire outside of the local municipal building in the town of Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia. This final act of defiance sparked a popular uprising that ousted the President and inspired a sea change in the region, which would come to be known as the Arab Spring.
This volume offers an informative introduction to the Arab uprisings, as a visually stunning monument to a people’s struggle for freedom and has been included in several criculums.
