|Dialogue from James' 1930s stage play, TOUSSAINT LOUVERTURE.)|
I will admit I was not knowledgeable of his story before I took on the project, but the research has taught me a lot of important stuff. The editor (who knew him late in life) has commented that it seems as if I had discussed the book with him.

"This marks the first appearance of excerpts from C.L.R. James, a Graphic History, a comic art book in process, drawn by distinguished African American artist Milton Knight, edited by Paul Buhle. The excerpts – young Trinidadian James grows to self-consciousness and emigrates to London, writes a play about Toussaint Louverture, with Paul Robeson starring – are easily understood."
Easily understood; that's a comment I like hearing more than you might guess.
