Freedom City 2017 is a city wide programme marking the 50th anniversary of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. receiving an honorary degree at Newcastle University. Freedom City Comics anthology presents snapshots of the history of civil rights and politics on Tyneside.

You can read the full comic online at the Freedom City Comics website. The printed comic was distributed to libraries, cultural venues, and other events around Tyneside as part of Freedom City 2017, as well as in the November 2017 issue of The Crack.

This website was built using Newcastle University’s t4 CMS. The layout was kept simple to allow the comic as much focus as possible.
