"This unflinching visual and literary tour-de-force tackles the most pressing issues of the day--including racism, patriarchy, gentrification, police violence, and the housing crisis--with humor and biting satire. When gentrification strikes the neighborhood surrounding Ronald Reagan University, Naima Pepper recruits a group of disgruntled undergrads of color to launch the first and only anti-gentrification social networking site, mydiaspora.com. The motley crew is poised to fight back against expensive avocado toast, muted Prius cars, exorbitant rent, and cultural appropriation. Whether Naima and the gang are transforming social media, leading protests, fighting rent hikes, or working as 'Racial Translators,' the students at Ronald Reagan University combine their technically savvy and Black Millennial sensibilities with their individual backgrounds, goals, and aspirations."--Amazon.com

A well drawn comic but a bit too Hotep for my tastes. I do not think I am the intended audience, however. This is really a millennium comic/graphic novel. It feels as though it takes up where Boondocks left off, except with less easy options and a narrower variety of ages. These are college students musing about how to shape their world. There is very little intergenerational interaction.

For me, it was meh, but I bet a younger person would love it.
