Refugee to Detainee: How the U.S. is Deporting Those Seeking a Safe Haven by Thi Bui for The Nib

My friend recently shared with me this comic that Thi Bui worked on about Southeast Asian refugees from the Vietnam War who are now being deported by the U.S. government after I showed them my PSA Poster! We were thinking about how we can use things like comics and animation to share more public knowledge about issues impacting our communities in a way that is pleasing to see and informational. This comic reminded me of McCloud’s essay on comics and how there are endless possibilities for comics, and it is pushing me to reimagine my understanding of art that can be used as a vehicle for social change.
