Yvan Alagabe' who is a Benin-French publisher, author & bande-dessinee' artiste was in Chicago rccently for the Chicago Humanities Festival.  During his tour he followed by a few days, Michelle Obama's signing at the University of Chicago based Seminary Co Op Book Store in the Hyde Park district which is the personal home of the Obamas. Alagabe's book, "Yellow Negroes" features illustrated tales about love, pain, politics, sex and more issues that flow from Africa into France and back again.  Turtel Onli who used to live and work in Paris as an illustrator hooked up with Alagab'e during his reading & signing.......and got a cool signed mint copy of the featured book. 

BTW Hyde Park is also the birthplace of the growing Black Age of Comics movement.
