Graphic Medicine

My past experience is the intersection of libraries and comics, and I was so happy to discover that there are others out there exploring the same thing in Medicine! I'll be putting interesting things I find in the field here if you want to check it out.

Three panels, one for each word: Frontline, Comics, Project. Underneath Frontline is a group of physicians covered in protective medical garb. There is a plus sign in between this panel and the next. The next panel features comics artists, old and young, women, men, featuring most prominently a black woman with glasses holding a pencil and sketchbook proudly. In between this and the next panel is an equal sign. The final panel, the project panel, features the finished comic book.


These stories from the COVID pandemic are collaborations between frontline workers and comic artists.

More Education and Information

Who Said It Was Simple by Audre Lorde

February 18th was Audre Lorde's birthday, and many places all over the country celebrated her lasting legacy and powerful words. As a lesbian black woman, this poem in particular covers the enormity of feeling within intersectionality.  

If the hope of giving is to love the living, the giver risks madness in the act of giving.  Some such lesson I seemed to see in the faces that surrounded me.  Needy and blind, unhopeful, unlifted, what gift would give them the gift to be gifted?           The giver is no less adrift           than those who are clamouring for the gift.  If they cannot claim it, if it is not there, if their empty fingers beat the empty air and the giver goes down on his knees in prayer knows that all of his giving has been for naught and that nothing was ever what he thought and turns in his guilty bed to stare at the starving multitudes standing there and rises from bed to curse at heaven, he must yet understand that to whom much is given much will be taken, and justly so: I cannot tell how much I owe.

Happy Black History Month: Featuring the Poetry of James Baldwin

Black History Month is a time to learn, reflect, and celebrate the incredible and difficult on-going journey for Black Americans to achieve true justice, equity, and liberty within the United States of America. The struggle for Civil Rights connects us all, and is a continual effort that we all must participate in, following the example of such venerated individuals and organizations like James Baldwin, Fred Hampton, Ida B. Wells, Toni Morrison, and the NAACP. 

More resources will be added progressively throughout the month. Please follow these links to learn more:

“When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Martyr” BY CORTNEY LAMAR CHARLESTON

From his website, Cortney Lamar Charleston's "poems paint themselves against the backgrounds of past and present; they grapple with race, masculinity, class, family, faith and how identity is, functionally, a transition zone between all of these competing markers. Said differently, his poetry is a call for a more involved and empathetic understanding of the diversity of the human experience."

He is the Poetry Editor at the Rumpus, and serves on the Alice James Books Editorial Board.
