This extraordinary document is not only a piece of comics history, but of African-American history, being the first comic created and published by black comic artists for a black audience. Devised by journalist Orrin Cromwell Evans in 1947, All-Negro #1 was posited as an alternative to the all-white, often racist comics otherwise populating the newsstands, and aimed to provide young black readers their own role models and heroes, sorely needed in that pre-civil rights era.
