Now, educational comics for teens! Authors of Beginner's Guide to Community-Based Arts, Keith Knight and Mat Schwarzman, have developed the first in a series of non-fiction comic books. Crossroads Comics #1 features stories about community-activist artists Chris Edaakie and Rhodessa Jones.

Chris Edaakie brings Native American dance alive at Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico, offering residents needed exercise that can prevent diabetes, while reinvigorating traditional culture. Rhodessa Jones engages female inmates of San Francisco County Jail in creating original dance and theater that helps them discover themselves and their talents.

The comics are derived from the Beginner's Guide to Community-Based Arts, and include introductory background for each story as well as profiles of the artists. They make inspiring tools for high school classrooms or informal study circles.
